Parnassus Books is thrilled to welcome Jamie Ford as he reads from and signs Love and Other Consolation Prizes.

Jamie Ford (author of Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet) has written a powerful novel inspired by a true story, about an orphan boy whose life is transformed when he is raffled off at Seattle’s 1909 World Fair. When Jamie found an old article in the Seattle Times about a baby who was given away as a prize at the Alaska-Yukon Pacific Exposition of 1909 (Seattle’s forgotten World’s Fair), he was instantly hooked. Did anyone claim this baby? Do we know what happened to him? A self-proclaimed fan of the unknown with a “never-ending appetite for lost history,” Ford knew this was the book he had to write. Set against a rich backdrop of post-Victorian vice, suffrage, and celebration, Love and Other Consolation Prizes is an unforgettable story about the power of friendship, love and devotion in a world where everything and everyone is for sale.

The son of a Chinese American father, Jamie Ford is author of the New York Times bestsellers Songs of Willow Frost and Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet, which won the Asian/Pacific American Award for Literature. Having grown up in Seattle, he now lives in Montana with his wife and children.
