Book launch: Adrienne Brodeur presents Little Monsters
In conversation with Jenny Jackson!
Greenlight is delighted to host the book launch of the novel Little Monsters by Adrienne Brodeur (Wild Game). Adam, a brilliant oceanographer, is approaching his seventieth birthday, staring down his mortality and fading relevance. He has always managed his bipolar disorder with medication, but he’s determined to make one last scientific breakthrough and so he has secretly stopped taking his pills, which he knows will infuriate his children. As Adam grows more attuned to the frequencies of the deep sea and less so to the people around him, his adult children with secrets of their own each plan the elaborate gifts they will present to their father on his birthday, jostling for primacy in this small family unit. Drawing on the biblical tale of Cain and Abel, this book launch is one you won't want to miss.
