In their debut young adult novel, Another Faust, the brother-sister writing team of Daniel and Dina Nayeri have reimagined the classic tale of Faust’s deal with the devil. One night, in cities all across Europe, five children vanish — only to appear, years later, at an exclusive New York party with a strange and elegant governess. Rumor and mystery follow the Faust teenagers to the city’s most prestigious high school, where they soar to suspicious heights with the help of their benefactor’s extraordinary “gifts.” But as the students claw their way up — by reading minds, erasing scenes, stopping time, stealing power, and seducing with artificial beauty — they start to suffer the side effects of their own addictions. Daniel Nayeri has held many book-related jobs, including editor, literary agent, and children’s librarian. He is also a professional pastry chef and award-winning stuntman. His sister, Dina Nayeri Viergutz, is a former teaching fellow in economics who holds both an MBA and a master’s of education from Harvard University. Both were born in Iran and now live in New York City and Amsterdam, respectively. Join Daniel and Dina at the store on Wednesday, November 11th at 6 pm for what is sure to be a stimulating conversation. (booksense)
