Book Launch: Katie Kitamura presents Intimacies
In conversation with Raven Leilani

Katie Kitamura, acclaimed author of A Separation and our Fort Greene neighbor, takes the virtual Greenlight stage to launch her electrifying new novel, Intimacies! An interpreter has come to The Hague to escape New York and work at the International Court. A woman of many languages and identities, she is looking for a place to finally call home. She's drawn into simmering personal dramas: her lover, Adriaan, is separated from his wife but still entangled in his marriage. Her friend Jana witnesses a seemingly random act of violence, a crime the interpreter becomes increasingly obsessed with as she befriends the victim's sister. And she's pulled into an explosive political controversy when she’s asked to interpret for a former president accused of war crimes. A woman of quiet passion, she confronts power, love, and violence, both in her personal intimacies and in her work at the Court. She is soon pushed to the precipice, where betrayal and heartbreak threaten to overwhelm her, forcing her to decide what she wants from her life. Kitamura is joined in conversation by Raven Leilani, award-winning author of Luster
