#CopingWith is CCM’s interview series run by managing editor Joanna C. Valente
Henry Hoke’s book,”The Book of Endless Sleepovers” came out on October 31, 2016 from CCM. Of the book, Maggie Nelson has said, “I love how Henry Hoke plays fast and loose with autobiography and genre. The Book of Endless Sleepovers is wry and finely-wrought, a philosophical fever dream studded with the pleasure of proper names and surprising turns of phrase, a lyric page-turner.”
