Book Launch: Emily Gould presents Perfect Tunes
In conversation with Naomi Fry
Author and publisher Emily Gould’s new novel, Perfect Tunes, is a story of music and motherhood, ambition and compromise—of life, in all its dissonance and harmony. It’s the early days of the new millennium, and Laura has arrived in New York City’s East Village with the hopes of recording her first album. She’s just beginning to book gigs when she falls hard for Dylan, a troubled but magnetic musician whose star is on the rise. Their time together is stormy and short-lived, but will reverberate for the rest of Laura’s life. Flash forward fourteen years: Laura’s daughter, Marie, is asking questions about the father she never knew, questions that Laura does not want to answer. Funny, wise, and utterly immersive, Perfect Tunes explores the fault lines between parents and children, and asks whether dreams deferred can ever be reclaimed. Joining Gould (virtually) in conversation is Naomi Fry, staff writer for The New Yorker.
Please note: Emily Gould will send signed bookplates to each person who purchases the book from Greenlight! Bookplates will be mailed separately (please allow extra time for signing and mailing); book orders will be processed as usual.
