Join us for the return of novelist Jim Lewis, in conversation with Donald Breckenridge, for the release of his fourth novel, Ghosts of New York.
The work of a celebrated novelist and veteran of the art, film, and music scenes in New York and Austin, Ghosts of New York explores complex lives through indelible renderings of settings—a bar, a night market, a recording studio—that alternate between familiar and unsettling. The novel interweaves four strands: a photographer newly returned to the neighborhood where she grew up, after years spent living overseas; a foundling raised on 14th Street; a graduate student, his romantic partner, and his best friend entangled in a set of relationships with far-reaching personal and political repercussions; and a shopkeeper suffering from first love late in life. Mixing prophecy, history, and a hint of speculative fiction, its stories are bound together even as they are propelled into stranger territory. And undergirding it all is a song, which appears, disappears, and then resurfaces.
The event is free but you must RSVP here to receive the Zoom link.
