Gabriel Roth (The Unknowns) and Kim Triedman (The Other Room) will read from their debut novels, take questions, and sign.
Facebook RSVP encouraged, but not required. Kim Triedman is both an award-winning poet and a novelist. Three years after the sudden, mysterious death of their 1-year-old daughter Lily, Josef Coleman, a high-strung New York surgeon, and his editor wife Claudia Macinnes remain mired in anguish and grief. To numb his pain and attempt to fill the gaping hole of loss, Josef turns to a young surgical nurse named Kiera; Claudia, meanwhile, is drawn into what seems like an unrequited fantasy about her psychotherapist, Stuart. The Other Room was a finalist for the 2008 James Jones First Novel Fellowship.
The Unknowns follows Eric Muller who, after spending high school in the solitary glow of a computer screen, becomes a Silicon Valley millionaire and falls for the beautiful Maya Marcom, who miraculously returns his affection. Gabriel Roth holds a BA from Brown University and an MFA in fiction from San Francisco State University. For several years he worked as a reporter and editor at the San Francisco Bay Guardian.
Eric Muller has been trying to hack the girlfriend problem for half his life. As a teenage geek, he discovered his gift for programming computers-but his attempts to understand women only confirm that he's better at writing code than connecting with human beings. Brilliant, neurotic, and lonely, Eric spends high school in the solitary glow of a screen.
