Please join us for an evening with critically acclaimed authors Jami Attenberg (The Kept Man) and Anne Landsman (The Rowing Lesson). The two novelists will read from and discuss their new work. Followed by a Q& A and signing. FREE.
THE KEPT MAN (Riverhead, January) is a riveting debut novel from a rising literary star about a young woman whose husband has fallen into a coma, and her discovery of evidence that casts doubt on their marriage.
In THE ROWING LESSON (Soho Press, 2007), Betsy Klein is summoned from her home in the United States to her father’s hospital bed in South Africa. We first meet young Harold Klein on an excursion with his friends on the Ebb ’N Flow, a river to which he often returns. That is where he later teaches his little daughter to row, and finally, where he makes his last metaphoric passage.
