Daphne Merkin presents 22 Minutes of Unconditional Love
In conversation with Meghan Daum
Daphne Merkin, author of Enchantment and This Close to Happy, joins Greenlight in a virtual book talk for 22 Minutes of Unconditional Love, her first novel in three decades. This powerful, psychologically complex tale follows Judith, a young book editor in New York City, through her descent into an all-consuming sexual obsession with a lawyer thirteen years her senior who soon exacts a degree of control over her body, emotions, and behavior that Judith finds by turns terrifying and thrilling. Recounted by Judith years after the end of this dangerous sexual entanglement, Merkin’s new novel tells the story of a woman determined to reclaim her autonomy in the aftermath of a destructive relationship. Candid and provocative in its exploration of psychosexual abuse and its boundaries yet playful and rich in humor, 22 Minutes of Unconditional Love offers a riveting depiction of the erotic lives of women. Merkin is joined in conversation by Meghan Daum, the New York Times bestselling author of six books, including My Misspent Youth and The Problem with Everything.
