ANIMAL WRONGS by Stephen Spotte is garnering rave reviews: Kirkus says, “This medieval comedy smacks of Monty Python’s bawdy and mischievous sense of humor.” Library Journal raves, “Spotte is a master storyteller.”

In a medieval French courtroom, animals are put on trial for “crimes” against mankind and must rely on preposterous legal diatribes by a court-appointed lawyer to defend them—great for fans of Umberto Eco, Edward Carey, and Amor Towles. Think Willard meets The Name of the Rose. Based on actual court records, Spotte captures the wit and bluster of the era, where courtrooms were packed with cheering and heckling spectators in ever-more opaque, convoluted, and dilatory trials.
Three Rooms Press celebrates the release of this one-of-a-kind novel with the official NYC virtual book launch featuring author Stephen Spotte in conversation with Three Rooms Press co-director Peter Carlaftes on Wednesday, October 27, 7 pm. The event will be live-streamed to Facebook and YouTube.
