Book Launch: Jessi Jezewska Stevens presents The Visitors
In conversation with Christian Lorentzen
Greenlight is delighted and proud to help launch rising star Jessi Jezewska Stevens's brilliant new novel out from And Other Stories, one of the most forward-thinking independent publishers based in the UK. In The Visitors, Stevens takes us on a mordantly funny tour through a world where not only civic infrastructure but our darkest desires (not to mention our novels) are vulnerable to malware; where mythical creatures talk like Don DeLillo; where love is little more than a blip in our metadata. On the eve of the Occupy Wall Street protests, C is flat broke. Once a renowned textile artist, she’s now the sole proprietor of an arts supply store in Lower Manhattan. Divorced, alone, and at loose ends, C is stuck with a struggling business, a stack of bills, a new erotic interest in her oldest friend, and a persistent hallucination in the form of a rogue garden gnome with a pointed interest in systems collapse. Join Stevens and critic Christian Lorentzen at our Flatbush Ave. store for an evening exploring How We Got Here and What We Do Next as we chart the last days of a broken status quo.

Replaying recent history through a distorting glass, The Visitors is a mordantly funny tour through through a world where not only civic infrastructure but our darkest desires (not to mention our novels) are vulnerable to malware; where mythical creatures talk like Don DeLillo; where love is little more than a blip in our metadata. It peers into How We Got Here and asks What We Do Next, charting the last days of a broken status quo as the path is cleared for something new.
