We’ll have intimate conversations with the authors of... a life-affirming novel about an obese parent who wants to make his son's suicide "mean something" by losing 200 pounds; ten powerful, subtle stories—"imagine [Elena] Ferrante telling a family's story from prismatic perspectives"—spanning 30 years; a bold, "often bleak but poignant" tale of a woman who tries to escape terrible wartime events in a San Francisco bookstore; and an acclaimed, "keenly observed" debut novel in which a frazzled new mother flees to the high desert with her baby. Pamela Feinsilber is a Path to Publishing editor, book editor, and freelance writing consultant.
