Fiona Maazel in conversation with Jennifer Gilmore

04/15/2013 7:00 pm

Join Fiona Maazel and Jennifer Gilmore for an evening of reading and conversation to celebrate their new novels.

Woke Up Lonely, Fiona Maazel's first novel since being named a "5 Under 35" choice by the National Book Foundation, focuses on Thurlow Dan who, mourning the departure of his former wife, founds Helix, a cult that promises to cure loneliness. Jennifer Gilmore's The Mothers tells the story of a couple's disappointment as they confront infertility and open adoption. Both writers' books transport with heart-killing stories of human frailty, susceptibility, loyalty and isolation.

"Fiona Maazel’s imagination is so wild—wild being an under-observed variety of honesty—that you feel like you’ve woken up into one of those rare novels as real as life. Hooray for such a talent!" – Rivka Galchen

 “Alternately hysterically funny and heartbreaking….down to the bone stripped-bare honest.”-A.M. Homes
