Philipp Meyer presents The Son
Philipp Meyer made an impressive literary debut with his critically-acclaimed first novel American Rust, which landed on the Best of the Year lists of the New York Times, Washington Post, and The Economist, won the Los Angeles Times Book Prize, and was selected as one of Newsweek’s “Best. Books. Ever.” Meyer’s much-anticipated new novel The Son (already a Greenlight favorite) is a multi-generational epic set in Texas, inspiring comparisons to the work of Larry McMurtry and Cormac McCarthy. Spanning most of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, the narrative tells the story not just of the settlement of the west, but of the moral cost of America’s rise to power, and of the people and cultures we have displaced along the way. Meyer reads and discusses his book and signs copies tonight.
