Paperback / softback

Description

"A unique perspective on one of the most infamous cities in recent American history." - Publisher's Weekly"A book that sticks with you long after you've read it." Volume 1 Brooklyn"Hoke's writing is blunt and honest, and Sticker is a collection worth keeping." Southern Review of Books"I will never forget this book." - T Kira Madden, author of Long Live the Tribe of Fatherless Girls"Funny, nostalgic, and weird in the best possible way." - Jocelyn Nicole Johnson, author of My MonticelloFeatured in Electric Lit's "The Most Anticipated LGBTQ+ Books of 2022"Object Lessons is a series of short, beautifully designed books about the hidden lives of ordinary things. Stickers adorn our first memories, dot our notebooks and our walls, are stuck annoyingly on fruit, and accompany us into adulthood to announce our beliefs from car bumpers.

They hold surprising power in their ability to define and provoke, and hold a strange steadfast presence in our age of fading physical media.

Henry Hoke employs a constellation of stickers to explore queer boyhood, parental disability, and ancestral violence.

A memoir in 20 stickers, Sticker is set against the backdrop of the encroaching neo-fascist presence in Hoke's hometown of Charlottesville, Virginia, which results in the fatal terrorist attack of August 12th and its national aftermath. Object Lessons is published in partnership with an essay series in The Atlantic.
