NYC Book Launch: Lidia Yuknavitch presents Verge: Stories
In conversation with Amber Tamblyn
Reception to follow
Lidia Yuknavitch's bestselling novels The Book of Joan and The Small Backs of Children, and her groundbreaking memoir The Chronology of Water, have established her as one of our most urgent contemporary voices: a writer with a rare gift for tracing the jagged boundaries between art and trauma, sex and violence, destruction and survival. In Verge, her first major collection of short stories in over a decade, she turns her eye to life on the margins, in all its beauty and brutality. A book of heroic grace and empathy, Verge is a viscerally powerful and moving survey of our modern heartache life. Yuknavitch discusses her story collection with actor, filmmaker, writer, and activist Amber Tamblyn (Era of Ignition, Any Man, and several books of poetry), speaking together at Greenlight for the second time!
