Time: 7:00 pm
Location: McNally Jackson Books (52 Prince St., Manhattan)
The family in Emma Straub’s latest novel are vacationing in Mallorca for two weeks, and carrying with them a lot more baggage than the stuff in their suitcases. A book The New York Times called “smart” and “delightfully misanthropic,” The Vacationers puts a new gloss on a familiar story: a family reawakened to dormant conflicts and childhood rivalries. Join Straub and her friend Edan Lepucki, whose new book is the impressively crafted debut novel California (about apocalypse, among other things). Part of McNally Jackson’s Literary BFFs series, hosted by Dadvid Gutowski, aka Largehearted Boy.
