Book Launch: A. Natasha Joukovsky presents The Portrait of a Mirror
In conversation with Lauren Oyler

A. Natasha Joukovsky presents her exquisitely self-reflexive debut, The Portrait of a Mirror, a stunning reinvention of the myth of Narcissus as a modern novel of manners. The lives of two young, well-heeled couples cross and tangle over the course of a summer, and they’re all enraptured by one another and too engulfed in desire to know what they want—despite knowing just how to act. In this wickedly fun debut, Joukovsky crafts an absorbing portrait of modern romance, rousing real sympathy for these flawed characters even as she skewers them. Shrewdly observed, whip-smart, and shot through with wit and good humor, The Portrait of a Mirror is a piercing exploration of narcissism, desire, self-delusion, and the great mythology of love. Lauren Oyler, author of Fake Accounts, joins Joukovsky for the launch of this sensational debut, which Booklist praises in a starred review as “clever and witty and intricate!”
