Storm Crow Reading Series Presents:
ZeroWave by Chris Eng — A Punk/K-Pop Queer Romance Novel
Exclusive Book Launch
«Kettle’s got a lot on her mind. There’s the usual; stupid stuff at home, crappy job, even crappier boyfriend, and then there’s a couple of other things, too. Like the realization that she’s not so into that four-chord, two-minute, hard-driving punk scene, and that just maybe 12 really pretty boys as they sing some pretty shiny pop is more her thing. And maybe – just maybe – that the hot girl with the tattoos and the pretty shiny life might just be more her thing, too.
ZeroWave, the second Hoodieripper punk romance from writer Chris Eng, is set against the dueling, fervent fandoms of DIY punk and the glossy, complicated world of K-Pop. A sexy, thoughtful love letter to being an outsider in a scene of outsiders, ZeroWave is about finding the courage to find yourself – and your ultimate bias.
Chris Eng discovered the punk scene in his home town of Victoria, BC when he was 12 and hasn't looked back. Over the course of his life he's done a variety of writing-related work, including editing an alt-weekly paper, writing a weird music review column for VICE, and penning scripts for multiple anime series. His previous novel, Molotov Hearts, was described by the National Post as “100% more authentic than any recent punk fashion exhibition.” Chris has travelled back and forth across the continent on a Greyhound, and lived in four of Canada's provinces. He currently calls Toronto home.»
