Zachary Lazar presents The Apartment on Calle Uruguay
In conversation with Ladee Hubbard

Greenlight welcomes award-winning author Zachary Lazar for the launch of his new novel The Apartment on Calle Uruguay. During the first summer of the post-Obama world, Christopher Bell, a blocked painter on the East End of Long Island, retreats to a modest house near a patch of woods and meets Ana Ramirez, a journalist who fled the crisis in Venezuela and is looking for work in New York. Bell has always felt marked by his foreignness, having emigrated to the U.S. as a child, and has come to believe that “words like ‘identity’ and ‘American’ are somehow very meaningful and very meaningless at the same time." Ana is trying to “reinvent herself as the kind of person she’d been before” the world she knew disappeared. The complicated romance that develops between them reveals their buried histories and vulnerabilities against the backdrops of an America in chaos and Mexico. Join us for a reading and discussion of this "stirring, multilayered, and beautifully written novel" (Booklist, Starred Review) with Lazar and author Ladee Hubbard at our Flatbush Ave store.
