  • Brian Francis Slattery at Porter Square Books, September 29th, 2014

    June 19, 2014

    MEET BRIAN FRANCIS SLATTERY

    MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 29, 2014, 7PM

    PORTER SQUARE BOOKS, CAMBRIDGE, MA

     

    The Family Hightower

    “There will be blood, Brian Slattery promises early on, and man, does he deliver. Expertly paced and beautifully detailed, The Family Hightower is a Ukrainian-American Godfather—a time-traveling, globetrotting crime saga spanning the last century, spiriting the reader from Morocco to Zimbabwe to Romania and always back home to strangely exotic Cleveland. Completely satisfying and completely brilliant.”

    —Stewart O’Nan, author of A Prayer for the Dying and Last Night at the Lobster

    In 1968 two boys are born into a large family, both named for their grandfather, Peter Henry Hightower. One boy—Peter—grows up in Africa and ends up a journalist in Granada. The other—Petey—becomes a minor criminal, first in Cleveland and then in Kiev. In 1995, Petey runs afoul of his associates and disappears. But the criminals, bent on revenge, track down the wrong cousin, and the Peter in Granada finds himself on the run.

  • Dan Wakefield and Nanette Vonnegut Discuss Kurt Vonnegut’s Artwork and “If This Isn’t Nice, What Is?”

    May 16, 2014

    May 16th @ 7PMVonnegut_IfThisIsn_tNice_large
    Barnes and Noble, Upper West Side

    Kurt Vonnegut was among the few grandmasters of twentieth-century American letters, one without whom the very term American literature would not mean what it does today. Vonnegut was also a gifted graphic artist and many of his novels include his felt-tip pen sketches. Please join Dan Wakefield and Vonnegut’s daughter Nanette, as they discuss Vonnegut’s artwork and written works.

    After the publication of his novel Slaughterhouse-Five brought him worldwide acclaim in 1969, Kurt Vonnegut became one of America’s most popular graduation speakers. If This Isn’t Nice, What Is? is a selection of Kurt Vonnegut’s best graduation speeches, edited and introduced by Dan Wakefield. Amid the sarcasm and wit that are typical of his writing, Vonnegut also conveys in these speeches something of the seriousness and the momentousness of life too. He tells stories and jokes, invokes the figures who inspire him the most–Jesus, Eugene Debs, Bertrand Russell, Jazz historian Albert Murray, and Vonnegut’s friend Joseph Heller among many others.

  • “The Walls of Delhi” Book Reading & Discussion at U. Chicago

    April 29, 2014

    April 29, 20149781609805289_large
    University of Chicago
    915 E 60th Street
    Chicago, IL 60637

    One of India’s most original and audacious writers Uday Prakash will speak at the University of Chicago on April 29th.

    Translated by Jason Grunebaum, The Walls of Delhi is an intricately  woven book, composed of three stinging and comic tales of living and surviving in today’s globalized India: a sweeper discovers a cache of black money and escapes to see the Taj Mahal with his underage mistress; an untouchable races to reclaim his life stolen by an upper-caste identity thief; a slum baby’s head gets bigger and bigger as he gets smarter and smarter, while his family tries to find a cure.

    In these stories, Prakash portrays the realities about caste and class with an authenticity rarely seen in English-language fiction about South Asia. Told in a compelling, vivid, and thoroughly modern voice, sharply political but free of heavy handedness, Prakash’s words leave an imprint on the mind and heart long after the final page is turned.
