Christopher Bollen in Conversation with Heidi Julavits, 7.30 pm

Join Interview Magazine’s Chris Bollen for a discussion of ORIENT, an expansive, stylishly crafted, psychologically astute murder mystery set in a rural community on the Eastern tip of Long Island—in which Bollen dissects the claustrophobia and complacency of East Coast summer playgrounds to offer his own spellbinding takedown of the
American Dream.

"Bollen excels at creating an atmosphere of Manhattan-specific dread, and certain scenes, particularly the account of a struggling actor's going-away party, are tragicomic masterpieces."—The New Yorker

 Bollen will be joined in conversation by the brilliant Heidi Julavits, author, most recently, of THE FOLDED CLOCK: A Diary.
