BOOK LAUNCH NEW YORK CITY NOVEMBER 1st! For Full tour and schedule, Chicago, Boston, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Miami and more: alifeinbooks.net/ Warren Lehrer’s A LIFE IN BOOKS: The Rise and Fall of Bleu Mobley, an illuminated novel that contains 101 books within it, all written and designed by Lehrer’s protagonist, who finds himself in prison looking back on his life and career. Mobley’s autobiography/apologia is paired with a review of all his books. Each book is represented by its first edition cover design and catalog copy, and more than a third of his books are excerpted. The resulting retrospective contrasts the published writings (which read like short stories) with the author’s confessional memoir, forming a most unusual portrait of a well-intentioned, obsessively inventive (but ethically challenged) visionary. The 380 page, 4 color novel will be published this fall by Goff Books, a new imprint ORO Editions that will feature works of Visual Literature and books on Art, Design, and Popular Culture.
