This discussion is part of the Get Lit Book Group with the Royal Room and Antigone Books.
Join us Thursday, September 20 at 6:00pm at The Royal Room to discuss In the Distance with You by Carla Guelfenbein (Other Press, $17.95).
Join us for drinks and discussion at the atmospheric Royal Room. This book group features a new theme each month; this month's theme is recently translated fiction.
“Guelfenbein’s elegantly structured, psychologically astute novel moves with the urgency of a detective novel, but its real mysteries turn on questions of authorship, reading, interpretation, and the strange power of fiction to enter the speechless realm of human erotic desire.” —Siri Hustvedt, author of The Blazing World
“Three figures gather around the comatose body of a legendary Latin American writer, trying—in different ways and before it’s too late—to unveil the dying woman’s secrets. In the Distance with You, Carla Guelfenbein has created a truly thrilling book about books, a novel about the spell great writers cast on either side of the grave.” —Benjamin Moser, author of Why This World: A Biography of Clarice Lispector
