Jonathan Lee presents The Great Mistake
In conversation with Téa Obreht

Jonathan Lee, acclaimed author of High Dive, comes to Greenlight (virtually!) to share his enveloping, exultant new novel, The Great Mistake. Andrew Haswell Green is dead, shot at the venerable age of eighty-three, when he thought life could hold no more surprises. Green was born to a poor farmer, yet without him there would be no Central Park, no Metropolitan Museum of Art, no Museum of Natural History, no New York Public Library. And Green had a secret, a life locked within him that now, in the hour of his death—alone, misunderstood—is set to break free. A work of tremendous depth and piercing emotion, The Great Mistake is the story of a city transformed, a murder that made a private man infamous, and a portrait of a singular individual who found the world closed off to him—yet enlarged it. Lee is joined in conversation by Téa Obreht, bestselling author of The Tiger’s Wife and Inland, who calls The Great Mistake “a wonder and a delight.”
