Nicholas Mancusi presents A Philosophy of Ruin
In conversation with Brendan Klinkenberg
Greenlight neighbor Nicholas Mancusi presents his electrifying new novel A Philosophy of Ruin, called “an unforgettable debut” by Alexander Chee. The novel follows a young philosophy professor, Oscar, who makes a series of troubling life decisions following his mother’s unexpected death, culminating in him agreeing to make a cross-country drug run. As Oscar hurtles down an increasingly chaotic path, this heart-pounding thrill ride becomes a philosophical reckoning with the forces that determine our destiny. Mancusi discusses his work with senior editor for Rolling Stone Brendan Klinkenberg.
