Emma Straub’s Modern Lovers, a New York Times Bestseller, tells the story of three young friends becoming old enough to watch their own children come of age. According to The New York Times, Straub “captures the jagged highs and lows of adolescence with freshness and precision, and the decades-long relationships of old college friends with a wry understanding of how time has both changed (and not changed) old dynamics.” Emma Straub has written for Tin House, The Paris Review Daily, The New York Times, and Rookie, and is the author of two previous novels, Laura Lamont's Life in Pictures and the New York Times Bestseller The Vacationers. Lorrie Moore says, "Emma Straub is a magician, full of brilliance and surprise.”
She will be joined by Stuart Nadler, for the New York launch of his new novel The Inseparables, an account of three generations of women dealing with unwanted disclosures, discoveries of secrets, and catastrophic relationships. Stuart Nadler is previously the author of the novel Wise Men and the short story collection The Book of Life, as well as a recipient of the 5 Under 35 Award from the National Book Foundation. "Stuart Nadler's savage wit and incendiary insights mix in this brilliant, funny and deeply moving novel to give us a glimpse into the generational moment we're all living in," says Alexander Chee. "This is a novel about how our culture treats sex, and the lives—and rights—of women of any age."
