Rochester Arts and Lectures: Meg Wolitzer
Downtown United Presbyterian Church, Thursday, October 15 at 7:30pm
Celebrated American novelist and chronicler of contemporary American life, Meg Wolitzer is the author of The Interestings; The Uncoupling; The Ten-Year Nap; The Position; The Wife; and, most recently, the YA novel Belzhar. Her short fiction has appeared in The Best American Short Stories and The Pushcart Prize. She is a frequent book critic for NPR's "All Things Considered," and a member of the creative writing faculty at Stony Brook. The Washington Post called her bestselling novel, The Interestings, "a sprawling, marvelously inventive novel...ambitious and enormously entertaining." It is "a supremely engrossing, deeply knowing, genius-level enterprise...The novel is thick and thickly populated. And yet Wolitzer is brilliant at keeping the reader close by her side as she takes her story back and forth across time, in and out of multiple lives, and into the tangle of countless continuing, sometimes compromising, conversations."
