J. Robert Lennon will read from his new novel from Graywolf Press, Broken River.  "Broken River is a novel with multiple identities: it's a ghost story, a crime story, a coming-of-age story, a story about love and family and fiction itself. What is astonishing is how well all these elements work together, how they intertwine as seamlessly as the fates of Lennon's characters. As good as fiction gets."—Ben Winters. This addictively suspenseful novel delivers one of the most innovative narrative devices in modern fiction, and is the #1 Indie Next pick for May!

J. Robert Lennon is the author of eight novels, including Mailman, Familiar, and Broken River, and the story collections Pieces for the Left Hand and See You in Paradise. He teaches writing at Cornell University.
