Wednesday, 11/4 – 7pm – Dylan Landis and Joanna Smith Rakoff


Dylan Landis author of Normal People Don’t Live Like This ($15.00 Persea Books)


“Delicious writing…Evocative, lyrical prose, and vivid imagery coupled with a subtle fictional approach, mysterious references, and ambiguities. Buy this for your literary fiction readers and short story fans – they’ll appreciate it”. – BOOKLIST, review by Ellen Loughran

“In this bracing debut, Dylan Landis guides us into the harsh, secretive
world of girls, where the mysteries of power and sexuality baldly govern, and adults and teenagers occasionally intersect across the barbed wire of a mutually earned mistrust.” – Janet Fitch, author of White Oleander and Paint it Black

“Dylan Landis leaves me breathless with admiration. Her haunting, luminous characters hold secrets we can’t help but recognize as our own, and we’re privy to their most intimate, complicated moments. Beautiful and unrelenting, Normal People Don’t Live Like This had me nodding and sighing and thinking, ‘Oh, but we do, we do.’ “- Lisa Glatt, author of A Girl Becomes a Comma Like That and The Apple’s Bruise
