Mark Sarvas presents Memento Park
In conversation with Maud Newton
Mark Sarvas, author of Harry, Revised, presents a new novel of family and identity, art and history at Greenlight. In Memento Park, a son learns more about his father than he ever could have imagined when a mysterious piece of art is unexpectedly restored to him. To recover the painting – looted from his family in Hungary during WWII – he must repair his strained relationship with his harshly judgmental father, uncover his family history, and restore his connection to his own Judaism. In the midst of illuminating the mysteries of his past, and caught in a desperate love triangle, he is pursued by an unanswerable predicament: How do we move forward when the past looms unreasonably large? Sarvas presents his latest novel at Greenlight in conversation with writer and critic Maud Newton.
