Cities of Men

a novel by

William Jensen

Thursday, April 27th | 5:30 pm | Brazos Hall

Join the Center for the Study of the Southwest for a book reading and signing of Cities of Men by their own William Jensen.

Cities of Men: In 1987, twelve-year-old Cooper Balsam's mother, Arden, disappears without a trace. As days pass, Cooper and his father search for the most important woman in their lives. From the hills of Southern California, to the deserts of Arizona, and down to the beaches of Mexico, the father and son will look for someone who may not want to be found for reasons they don't yet understand.

William Jensen grew up in California and Arizona. He has worked as a landscaper, a construction worker, a dishwasher, a groundskeeper, a teacher, and as an editor. His short fiction has appeared in various journals and anthologies, and his work has been nominated for several pushcart prizes. He now lives in Texas.
