Susan Steinberg will read from Machine: A Novel, published by Graywolf. “After making waves with her book Spectacle, bold stylist Susan Steinberg resurfaces with her first novel, a tale of gender, class, privilege and trauma set during a summer at the shore. . . . The narrative grapples with guilt and blame while eschewing formal conventions.”―Chicago Tribune
