Today on Jonesy, we welcome Yuvi Zalkow, author of the new novel I Only Cry With Emoticons from Red Hen Press.

In addition to I Only Cry With Emoticons, Yuvi is the author of the novel A Brilliant Novel in the Works. His short stories and essays have been published in Glimmer Train, Narrative Magazine, Carve Magazine, Rosebud, The Los Angeles Review, and others. His creative work also includes the Neurotic Tornado podcast, animated YouTube videos, blog posts, and iOS apps.

In the words of novelist Monica Drake: I Only Cry With Emoticons is "a sly, forthright comedy about the intersection of love and technology, men and women, and the way our devices have become a loud third wheel. I couldn't put it down.”

Yuvi will be launching the new book, in conversation with Joanna Rose, at Powell's City of Books on Tuesday, June 7th at 7pm. He'll also be reading at Annie Bloom's Books on Tuesday, August 16th and Broadway Books on Wednesday, September 14th. You can find all Yuvi's upcoming events on his website.
