Powell's Books Presents Sasha Fletcher in Conversation With Lydia Kiesling
It’s Brooklyn. It’s winter. It’s so cold outside you could execute billionaires in the street about it. Sam lives with Eleanor and they are in love. He has three or four outstanding invoices that would each cover rent for a month. At some point, the President is going to make some absolutely wild announcements that will only end in doom. In a surreal, funny, and heart-breaking version of reality, Sasha Fletcher’s highly anticipated debut novel occupies that rare register that manages to speak to an increasingly incomprehensible world. Through scenes that poetically transform the mundane into the sublime and the absurd into the tragic, Be Here to Love Me at the End of the World (Melville House) is about the exquisite beauty of being in love in a world that is falling apart. Fletcher will be joined in conversation by Lydia Kiesling, author of The Golden State.
