Literary Luncheon: Anna Quindlen - Alternate Side

Join Anna Quindlan for lunch and discussion about her provocative novel about money, class, and self-discovery

The tensions in a tight-knit neighborhood–and a seemingly happy marriage–are exposed by an unexpected act of violence in Alternate Side, the provocative new novel from the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Miller’s Valley.

Some days Nora Nolan thinks that she and her husband, Charlie, lead a charmed life–except when there’s a crisis at work, a leak in the roof at home, or a problem with their twins at college.

And why not? New York City was once Nora’s dream destination, and her clannish dead-end block has become a safe harbor, a tranquil village amid the urban craziness.

Then one morning she returns from her run to discover that a terrible incident has shaken the neighborhood, and the fault lines begin to open: on the block, at her job, especially in her marriage.

With humor, understanding, an acute eye, and a warm heart, Anna Quindlen explores what it means to be a mother, a wife, and a woman at a moment of reckoning.

Book Passage hosts literary luncheons with celebrated authors at our Corte Madera store. Lunch is catered by Insalata’s Restaurant.
