James Magruder will read from his collection of linked stories, Let Me See It at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, July 29, at Prairie Lights Bookstore in downtown Iowa City.
Let Me See It follows two gay cousins from adolescence in the 1970s to adulthood in the early '90s. With a rueful blend of comedy and tenderness, Magruder depicts their attempts to navigate the closet and the office and the lessons they learn along the way.
