Book Launch: Reif Larsen presents I Am Radar
Reif Larsen’s debut novel, The Selected Works of T. S. Spivet, was short-listed for the Guardian First Book Award and translated into twenty-seven languages, establishing Larsen as a writer to watch. His much-anticipated follow-up novel I Am Radar is an epic, immersive novel that draws on the furthest reaches of quantum physics, forgotten history, and performance art. Born black to white parents in 1975 New Jersey, radio operator Radar Radmanovic becomes entangled with terrible events in Yugoslavia, Norway, Cambodia, the Congo, and beyond. Falling in with a secretive group of puppeteers and scientists—who stage experimental art for people suffering under war-time sieges—Radar is forced to confront the true nature of his identity. Join us to launch Larsen’s new novel at Greenlight!
