Book Launch: Raven Leilani presents Luster
In conversation with Samantha Irby
Greenlight is thrilled to host prize-winning writer Raven Leilani for the launch of her highly anticipated debut novel, Luster. Edie is stumbling her way through her twenties—sharing a subpar apartment in Bushwick, clocking in and out of her admin job, making a series of inappropriate sexual choices. She is also haltingly, fitfully giving heat and air to the art that simmers inside her. Irresistibly unruly and strikingly beautiful, razor-sharp and slyly comic, sexually charged and utterly absorbing, Luster is a portrait of a young Black woman trying to make sense of her life—her hunger, her anger—in a tumultuous era. Samantha Irby, comedian and author of #1 New York Times bestseller Wow, No Thank You., joins Leilani in conversation at this virtual pre-publication book launch!
