Marcy Dermansky: Paperback Release Party with Jillian Medoff, author of This Could Hurt
October 13, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
In her “dry, delightful fairy tale for grown-ups” (People), celebrated novelist Marcy Dermansky offers a biting exploration of a woman’s search for self-realization and models of a life well lived. When Leah’s former boss and mentor, Judy, dies in an accident and leaves Leah her most prized possession–a flashy red sports car–the shock forces Leah to reevaluate her whole life. Leah is living in Queens with a husband she doesn’t love and a list of unfulfilled ambitions. Returning to San Francisco to claim the mysteriously powerful car, she revisits past lives and loves in several sprawling days colored by sex and sorrow.
Marcy Dermansky is the author of the novels The Red Car, Bad Marie, and Twins. Her writing has appeared in McSweeney’s, Salon, the Indiana Review, and elsewhere.
Marcy will be in conversation with Jillian Medoff, author of Hunger Point and the upcoming This Could Hurt (January 2018) at Watchung Booksellers on October 13th. For event details, please go here for more information.
