Catherine Lacey presents Certain American States
In conversation with Alexander Chee
Wine reception to follow
Award-winning novelist Catherine Lacey (author of Nobody Is Ever Missing and The Answers) returns to Greenlight to present her new book Certain American States, a collection of stories about ordinary people seeking—and failing to find—the extraordinary in their lives. Lacey's debut story collection gives life to a group of subtly complex, instantly memorable characters continually coming to terms with their place in the world, whose tentative journeys into the minutiae of the human condition are simultaneously gripping and devastating. Lacey discusses her work with friend and fellow author Alexander Chee, author of The Queen of the Night and How To Write An Autobiographical Novel, followed by a wine reception.
