The Vagaries of Love with Louise Doughty and Jill Dawson
WORD (126 Franklin St., Brooklyn)
WORD welcomes British novelists Jill Dawson and Louise Doughty as they present their new novels, both of which deal with love’s darker aspects. Dawson’s novel The Great Lover delves into the life and mind of the dashing, notoriously rakish First World War poet Rupert Brooke, based on previously unseen correspondence and materials. Doughty’s new novel, Whatever You Love, follows a grieving mother down a dark and twisted path as she seeks justice for her lost daughter.
