Jess Walter - Beautiful Ruins
Colfax Avenue: Jess Walter, the acclaimed, award-winning author of the national bestseller The Financial Lives of the Poets, will read from and sign his funniest and most romantic novel yet Beautiful Ruins (HarperCollins), the story of an almost-love affair that begins on the Italian coast in 1962, and is rekindled in Hollywood fifty years later. Gloriously inventive, constantly surprising, Beautiful Ruins is a story of flawed yet fascinating people, navigating the rocky shores of their lives while clinging to their improbable dreams.
"Jess Walter has already proven that he’s one of our great comic writers ('Financial Lives of the Poets'), a cerebral postmodernist ('The Zero') and a savvy plotter of thrillers ('Citizen Vince'). Now he has his masterpiece, 'Beautiful Ruins,' an interlocking, continent-hopping, decade-spanning novel with heart and pathos to burn, all big dreams, lost loves, deep longings and damn near perfect." -- David Daley, SALON
