    WORD Presents: Simon Van Booy for THE SADNESS OF BEAUTIFUL THINGS

    10/09/2018 - 7:30pm
    Simon van Booy Sadness of Beautiful Things

    Over the past decade, the British-born but Brooklyn-based Simon Van Booy has been collecting stories. Starting with these anecdotes told to him by strangers, he has woven The Sadness of Beautiful Things together with graceful prose and a keen eye for character. The result is a set of vivid, almost otherworldly stories set in New York City, Ireland, and Britain, that feature muggers, musicians, hitchhikers, and parents battling depression. In each of them, Van Booy shines an unwavering light onto the darkness of human longing, suffering, and grief.
