Douglas Trevor & Michael Byers

Authors Douglas Trevor visits to discuss his debut novel Girls I Know, published by OneSixSeven Books. He is joined by colleague and fellow author Michael Byers (Percival's Planet, Long for This World). 


In the winter of 2001, 29-year-old Walt Steadman survives a shooting in his favorite Boston cafe that leaves four people dead. In the aftermath, Walt forms two new relationships: one with Ginger Newton, a privileged, reckless, Harvard undergraduate who is interviewing women about their lives for a book called "Girls I Know," and the other with 11-year-old Mercedes Bittles, whose parents were killed in the restaurant. Wounded but resilient, all three must deal with loss and grief and the consequences that come when their lives change in unexpected ways.
