Beyond honored to be introducing the one and only Lauren Groff, who will be in conversation with Jonathan Lethem at the 92Y.
Lauren Groff, author of Fates and Furies (President Obama’s Favorite Book of 2015), now publishes the story collection Florida. “Her stories have the feel of autobiography, although, as in a Salvador Dali painting, their emotional disclosures are encrypted in phantasmagoria,” wrote The New Yorker. “Her sentences are gorgeously weird and limber.” Jonathan Lethem’s new novel is The Feral Detective, his first detective novel since Motherless Brooklyn. “Lethem writes knowingly and brilliantly about weird, off-the-grid, wayward America,” wrote Dana Spiotta. “In his ever-more-electric prose, he illuminates both the barbarity and the beauty.”
