Event Description:

​BookTalk: The Number of Missing by Adam Berlin

March 25, 2015
4:15-5:30pm
Conference Room, 9th fl.


In the months after 9/11, David and Mel meet to drink, give each other comfort and reminisce about Paul—Mel’s husband and David’s best friend. The memories are not all good for David. Before Paul died, the two friends fought, brutally questioning each other’s lives. Fueled by anger and grief and too much alcohol, David stumbles through the city while holding onto a silent promise he’s made to a dead friend: he will wait for Mel to fall so he can catch her. Like the best post-war novels, where catastrophe is not an easy catalyst for plot, where characters go on living but not really, is about New York during a time when the city seemed dead.

*All book talks are free and open to the public.
Refreshments will be served. The events will be recorded (pending authors permission)
