Fiona Maazel in conversation with Jennifer Gilmore

Join Fiona Maazel and Jennifer Gilmore for an evening of reading and conversation to celebrate their new novels.Woke Up Lonely, Fiona Maazel's first novel since being named a "5 Under 35" choice by the National Book Foundation, focuses on Thurlow Dan who, mourning the departure of his former wife, founds Helix, a cult that promises to cure loneliness. Jennifer Gilmore's The Mothers tells the story of a couple's disappointment as they confront infertility and open adoption. Both writers' books transport with heart-killing stories of human frailty, susceptibility, loyalty and isolation."Fiona Maazel’s imagination is so wild—wild being an under-observed variety of honesty—that you feel like you’ve woken up into one of those rare novels as real as life. Hooray for such a talent!" – Rivka Galchen “Alternately hysterically funny and heartbreaking….down to the bone stripped-bare honest.”-A.M. Homes
