Emily St. John Mandel and The Lola Quartet
WORD (126 Franklin St., Brooklyn)
Local author and staff favorite Emily St. John Mandel presents her third novel, The Lola Quartet, with a launch party and reading, with an opening musical performance by guitarist Tzvi Skolnik!
In The Lola Quartet, mistakes made years in Gavin Sasaki’s past come back to haunt him as mistakes made in his career send him back to his hometown. An intense piece of literary noir, the plot spans jazz, Django Reinhardt, economic collapse, friendship and love, Florida’s exotic wildlife problem, fedoras, and the unreliability of memory.
