Brentwood - Publication Party for "Potboiler" with Jesse Kellerman
Diesel, A Bookstore in Brentwood welcomes acclaimed author Jesse Kellerman to the store to celebrate the publication of his new novel, Potboiler, on Thursday, July 12th at 7pm.
The protagonist of Potboiler, Arthur Pfefferkorn, is a has-been, or perhaps a never-was: a middle-aged professor with long-dead literary aspirations. When his oldest friend, the writer William de Vallee, is lost at sea, Pfefferkorn is torn between envy and grief: de Vallee not only outshone him professionally, but married the woman Pfefferkorn loved. Pfefferkorn's decision to reconnect with his friend's widow sets in motion a surreal chain of events, plunging him into a shadowy realm of double crosses and intrigue.
Jesse Kellerman was born in Los Angeles in 1978. He has published four novels: The Executor, The Genius, Trouble, and Sunstroke. He holds an MFA in theater, and has won several awards for his writing, including the Princess Grace Award, given to America's most promising young playwright. He lives with his wife and son in La Jolla.

Jesse Kellerman and Matthew Quirk join us for an evening of publishing and politics! In Potboiler, a professor with severe envy of his friend’s commercial success as a writer plagiarizes his friend’s unfinished novel when the best-seller is lost at sea. His success has dire consequences, as Jesse embraces and exaggerates the tropes of the thriller. And Matthew draws on his background as a journalist for The Atlantic for his tale of a Harvard law student whose initial enthusiasm for his new job at a high-powered Washington D.C. consulting firm turns to dismay as he uncovers corruption and a political conspiracy in The 500.
