The best part? Bruce Wagner will be joining in the discussion!
The empty chair is composed of two companion novellas that illuminate the strength of the human spirit in the face of the random, chaotic nature of our suffering. Two strangers, years apart and at opposite ends of the country, share their stories with the narrator. The first story, “First Guru,” tells the tale of a Buddhist living in Big Sur, who achieves enlightenment in the horrific aftermath of his child's suicide. In "Second Guru," Queenie, an aging wild child, returns to India to complete the spiritual journey of her youth. Bruce Wagner is a screenwriter and director, as well as the author of several novels, including The Chrysanthemum Palace (a PEN Faulkner fiction award finalist), I’ll Let You Go, and Force Majeure. He lives in Los Angeles.
