Kyle BoelteThe Beautiful Unseen

Kyle Boelte reads from and discusses his unique memoir The Beautiful Unseen: Variations on Fog and Forgetting. At age thirty, Boelte finds himself living in San Francisco, amidst an ever-changing sea of fog, and struggling to remember his brother Kris, who committed suicide in the family’s Denver home when Boelte was just thirteen. In this impressive debut, Boelte sets up a dual narrative: one investigates San Francisco’s climate to explain the science behind the omnipresent fog; another explores Boelte’s memory as well as letters, notes, newspaper articles, and other artifacts that tell the story of his brother’s short life and eventual suicide.

($15.95) Soft Skull Press ISBN # 9781619024588. You can visit Kyle Boelte‘s official web site as well.
