J. Robert Lennon with Ed Champion

In J. Robert Lennon’s Familiar, a funny thing happens on the way back from a grave. Or not so funny -- Elisa Brown is returning from her annual visit to her son Silas’s tombstone, when something shifts. Her body has grown new curves, her clothes have changed, her car is new, and her son is not dead. Lennon’s Familiar captures the feeling of being trapped in a dream without any escape, mixing existential confusion with familial turmoil to illustrate Elisa’s strange dilemma. Ed Champion, author of the literary blog Reluctant Habits and host of the Bat Segundo Show, will join Lennon in conversation.
