Andrew Sean Greer & Julie Orringer

Andrew Sean Greer presents The Impossible Lives of Greta Wells
In conversation with Julie Orringer
Andrew Sean Greer, the critically acclaimed author of the New York Times bestseller The Confessions of Max Tivoli, offers a rapturously romantic tale with his new novel The Impossible Lives of Greta Wells. Set in Manhattan’s West Village in 1918, 1941, and 1985, the novel tells the story of a woman who finds herself transported to the “other lives” she might have lived, where she must wrestle with the unpredictability of love and the consequences of even her most carefully considered choices. Greer’s work has been highly praised by both critics and fellow authors, including Brooklyn author Julie Orringer, who writes of Greer’s new novel, “He has been called our Proust, our Nabokov, but with this book, his most accomplished yet, he transcends all comparison. No one tells the secrets of the human heart more bravely or more eloquently. Read this novel and weep.” Orringer talks with Greer about his work and the new book tonight; join us for an evening with two Greenlight favorites.
