Home No. 5

Hi, I'm Jami Attenberg. I write books, and much, much more. My fourth book, The Middlesteins, came out in 2012. You can order it here or here. My fifth book, Saint Mazie, will be published in 2015.

Also I like dogs and fighting crime.

This is the fifth place to find me on the internet. Please don't tell me I need a sixth.

Tonight I’m interviewing Meg Wolitzer at WORD Brooklyn. Her new novel, The Interestings, is one of my favorite books of the year. It is funny and smart and gorgeous and ambitious and epic and it reads like a dream. Even if you cannot come tonight I recommend you buying this book. You will get lost in it, which is obviously one of the best parts of reading a book.
Did you know she’s written NINE books? How many have you written? I think she knows about a lot of things that we do not know about both as a writer and as a human being, and I, for one, would like to access her brain for a minute or two.
Items to be discussed include:
Flash forwarding in fiction
Naming characters
Jealousy
Ambition
Love
Sexism
Summer camp
Also she is excited to answer your questions.
Also you should read her fantastic essay on the different rules for men and women in the literary world.
I hope to see you there. Please be wearing your thinking caps. This will be a smart and fun night.
