The Book Cellar
We are excited to host Jen Miller and Jennifer Close as they discuss their debut novels:
Jen Miller will be discussing her debut novel The Year of the Gadfly, about 'a budding teenage journalist at an elite prep school
and her enigmatic science teacher each separately attempt to track down
a secret society that may hold damning evidence about a shadowy tragedy
in the school's—and the teacher's—past."
"Hysterical and moving, The Year of the Gadfly fuses Special Topics in Calamity Physics with Portnoy's Complaint for girls. This book is an imaginative delight."
—Gary Shteyngart, author of Super Sad True Love Story
Jennifer Close will be talking about her debut novel Girls in White Dresses, which details the "thrilling, bewildering years of early adulthood...perfectly capturing the wild frustrations and soaring joys of modern life."
“Close’s witty voice . . . charts the romantic shenanigans of a bevy of New York women in their 20s, before career success or Botoxed foreheads. Dating is a phenomenon to be analyzed in improvised group therapy over cocktails.” —The New York Times
