Three distinguished novelists discuss variations on the theme of love. The compelling Andre Dubus III speaks about his collection of linked novellas, Dirty Love, an exploration of disillusionment and yearning. Nicholson Baker, “one of the masters of the contemporary novel,” (Booklist) revisits the hapless hero of The Anthologist, who remains unlucky in love but ever hopeful in Traveling Sprinkler. Jamie Quatro discusses her story collection, I Want to Show You More, a “dogged, brutally thoughtful piece of work.” (New York Times) Moderated by New Yorker book critic and author of The Fun Stuff, James Wood.
