‘Around Harvard Square’ is Coming to Harvard Book Store

AroundHarvardSquarecoverAround Harvard Square” is coming to Harvard!

I’ll be discussing my new novel at Harvard Book Store, 1256 Massachusetts Ave., Cambridge, MA 02138 on April 30, at 7pm. The store is right across the street from Harvard Yard.

I started writing “Around Harvard Square” when I was a freshman at Harvard and now I’m bringing the finished book back to where it began. It only took 30 years or so.

For more details you can visit the Harvard Book Store website.

“Around Harvard Square” is available for pre-order right now!

‘Around Harvard Square’ by C.J. Farley Coming on Akashic Books in 2019

EmmaLampoonMy new novel “Around Harvard Square” is set to be published by Akashic Books in 2019!

Here’s how it was described on GoodReads and Publishers Lunch: “a satirical novel about a Jamaican-American freshman and his misfit international friends who compete against ridiculous odds to join the staff of Harvard University’s legendary humor magazine, in a story exploring race and class, sex and philosophy, collegiate pranks and Ivy League secrets.”

Back in the day, I was an editor at the Harvard Lampoon. I’m not saying it’s about the Harvard Lampoon, but I’m not not saying it’s about the Harvard Lampoon.

More to come!
