Beverly Gologorsky, author of the new novel Stop Here, and Laura Hemphill, author of Buying In, will be reading and discussing their work KGB Bar on Thursday, December 12 at 7pm.
Beverly Gologorsky’s long-awaited, just-published second novel, Stop Here, through “luminous prose and remarkable insight into human nature,” explores the lives of working-class women and their families through the lens of war, destruction, loss, and economic struggle. Elizabeth Strout has praised its “unflinching, piercing . . . [look] straight into the face of class in this country, capturing the reverberations across generations of who really fights our wars, who really serves our coffee, who really gets up in the dark to wipe the diners’ counter clean.” Beverly’s acclaimed debut novel, The Things We Do to Make it Home, was a New York Times Notable Book of the Year, a Los Angeles Times Best Fiction selection, and a finalist for the Barnes and Noble Discover Great Writers Award.
