Book Launch: Jonathan Miles presents Want Not

Jonathan Miles’ debut novel, Dear American Airlines, was reviewed on the front page of the New York Times Book Review by Richard Russo who called it “not just philosophically but emotionally rewarding.” Other reviews hailed Miles as a comic genius who was after something bigger, a writer who can break your heart but keep you laughing. In his second novel Want Not, Miles brings that compulsively readable voice to the ambitious and complex story that interweaves several disparate lives (a Manhattan freegan couple, a New Jersey debt collections magnate, and others) and examines our yearnings for fulfillment and our varying ideas of excess. Join us for the launch event for this new book with Miles, true chronicler of the modern human condition in all its poignant hilarity.
