Following my book launch on Monday, I will be doing a virtual reading at Skylight Books on Wednesday, in conversation with my dear friend and mentor Christopher Castellani, author of Leading Men, which is currently being made into a film. So fitting for an event in Los Angeles 🙂 Please come hang out with us, and tell your West Coast friends!
Can’t wait for the launch of THE PLAYWRIGHT’S HOUSE as part of the Grubbie Debut Series in three weeks’ time! Please register and come virtually hang out with me and Jonathan Escoffery, whose books will inevitably take over the literary world in the near future. Please share with anyone who might be interested in hearing about the novel and contemporary Cuba and maybe even some writing craft!
THE PLAYWRIGHT’S HOUSE is one of Silver Unicorn Books’ top ten books for June! Honored to be alongside writers such as Clint Smith and Lisa Taddeo, as well as Carol Anderson’s important work. Please check out this fantastic bookstore and be on the lookout for an event I’ll be doing there soon!
I was delighted to learn last week that Kathryn Schulz has selected my essay, “In Orbit,” originally published in The Threepenny Review, for inclusion in this year’s BEST AMERICAN ESSAYS anthology! Publication is scheduled for fall. I’m immensely grateful to Wendy Lesser for giving the essay a home in one of my dream journals and to everyone who read early versions before it went out into the world.
