Please join Parnassus in welcoming Jamie Quatro and Jessica Francis Kane for a special author event! Jamie will be discussing her latest book I Want to Show You More and Jessica will be introducing This Close. Sharp-edged and fearless, mixing white-hot yearning with daring humor, Jamie Quatro’s debut collection is a beautiful and disquieting portrait of infidelity, faith, and family. I Want to Show You More unleashes Quatro’s exhilarating talent for exposing the quiet terrors of modern life with stunning and subversive energy.
How close can we come to love, success, happiness, forgiveness? Through thirteen stories, some stand-alone, others woven with linked characters, Kane questions the tensions between friendship and neighborliness, home and travel, family and ambition. In writing filled with wit and humor and sadness, she deftly reveals the everyday patterns that, over time, can swerve a life off course.You can pre-order I Want to Show You More here.
