Brentwood- Stewart O'Nan discusses and signs "West of Sunset"
Diesel, a bookstore - Brentwood, Tuesday, January 27 at 6:30pm
Diesel, A Bookstore in Brentwood welcomes author Stewart O'Nan to the store to discuss and sign his new novel West of Sunset on Tuesday, January 27th at 6:30pm.

In 1937, F. Scott Fitzgerald was a troubled, uncertain man whose literary success was long over. In poor health, with his wife consigned to a mental asylum and his finances in ruins, he struggled to make a new start as a screenwriter in Hollywood. By December 1940, he would be dead of a heart attack. Those last three years of Fitzgerald's life, often obscured by the legend of his earlier Jazz Age glamour, are the focus of Stewart O'Nan's gorgeously and gracefully written novel. With flashbacks to key moments from Fitzgerald's past, the story follows him as he arrives on the MGM lot, falls in love with brassy gossip columnist Sheilah Graham, begins work on The Last Tycoon, and tries to maintain a semblance of family life with the absent Zelda and daughter, Scottie.

Stewart O'Nan is the author of fourteen previous novels, including The Odds, Emily, Alone, A Prayer for the Dying, and Snow Angels. His novel Last Night at the Lobster was a national bestseller and finalist for the Los Angeles Times Book Prize. He was born and raised in Pittsburgh where he lives with his family.

Brentwood- Karen Bender discusses and signs "Refund"
Diesel, a bookstore - Brentwood, Sunday, February 1 at 3pm
Diesel, A Bookstore in Brentwood welcomes author Karen Bender to the store to discuss and sign her new collection of short stories, Refund, on Thursday, February 1st at 3pm.

In Refund, Bender creates an award-winning collection of stories that deeply explore the ways in which money and the estimation of value affect the lives of her characters. The stories are filled with swindlers, reality show creators, desperate artists, siblings, parents, all trying to answer the question: What is the real definition of worth? In "Theft," an eighty-year-old swindler boards a cruise ship to see if she can find something of true value: a human connection. In "Anything for Money," the creator of a reality show is thrown into the real world when his estranged granddaughter reenters his life in need of a new heart; and in the title story, young artist parents in downtown Manhattan escape the attack on 9/11 only to face a battle over their subletted apartment with a stranger who might have lost more than only her deposit.

Karen E. Bender is the author of the novels Like Normal People and A Town of Empty Rooms. Her fiction has appeared in numerous literary publications including, The New Yorker, and Granta. Her stories have been anthologized in Best American Short Stories, Best American Mystery Stories, New Stories from the South: The Year's Best, and have won two Pushcart prizes. She has taught creative writing at Antioch University Los Angeles, the University of North Carolina at Wilmington, and Tunghai University in Taiwan. She lives in North Carolina with her husband, novelist Robert Anthony Siegel, and their two children.
