Nafkote Tamirat presents The Parking Lot Attendant
In conversation with Sam Graham-Felsen
Nafkote Tamirat, hailed as a “blazing new talent” by Victor LaValle, presents her debut novel The Parking Lot Attendant, a mesmerizing coming-of-age story of fatherhood, national identity, and what it means to be an immigrant in America today. On an undisclosed island resides an unnamed narrator and her father, the two newest members of a commune built on utopian principles, whose foundations are not as harmonious as they initially seem. Flash back to Boston’s tightly-knit Ethiopian community – and the arrival on the scene of a charismatic hustler out to change the world. The Parking Lot Attendant explores how who we love, the choices we make, and the places we're from combine to make us who we are. Tamirat presents her highly anticipated debut novel at Greenlight in conversation with Sam Graham-Felsen, author of Green.
