Among The Ten Thousand Things: Julia Pierpont in Conversation with J. Courtney Sullivan

Julia Pierpont will visit McNally Jackson to discuss AMONG THE TEN THOUSAND THINGS, an intelligently conceived first novel about the brittleness of family ties which tackles questions of love, regret, and lost time with notable wisdom and originality. Colm Toibin writes that Pierpont "displays [...] real tact as a writer, knowing how much to say, how much to leave out, how much to imply. She allows her characters complexity and ambiguity and makes the relationship between them all the more memorable for that.” Pierpont will be joined in conversation by J. Courtney Sullivan, author of Maine, Commencement and, most recently, The Engagements.
