Book Launch: William Brewer presents The Red Arrow
Interviewer To Be Announced!
Greenlight is proud to launch the debuts of some of the most interesting new voices in fiction, and in this spirit we warmly welcome William Brewer for the (virtual) launch of The Red Arrow. When a once-promising young writer agrees to ghostwrite a famous physicist’s memoir, his livelihood is already in jeopardy. Plagued by debt, he has grown distant from his wife—a successful AI designer—and is haunted by an overwhelming sense of dread he describes as “The Mist.” Then, things get worse: the physicist vanishes, leaving everything in limbo, including our narrator’s sanity. Featuring a propulsive story that ricochets across the globe and a tapestry of literary allusions, The Red Arrow has been hailed as an "exceptional debut" (Kirkus Reviews, Starred Review) and "a work of unbridled imagination" (Charles Yu, author of Interior Chinatown). Join us virtually and hear it here first!

Moving swiftly from a chemical spill in West Virginia to Silicon Valley, from a Brooklyn art studio to a high-speed train racing across the Italian countryside, The Red Arrow wades into the shadowy depths of the human psyche only to emerge, as if speeding through a mile-long tunnel, into a world that is so bright and wondrous, it almost feels completely new.
