The End of the Affair 愛，情意終盡
Award-winning YA author Sarah Crossan’s first novel for adults, Here Is the Beehive, explores the fickleness of love and desire as a woman connects with the widow of her deceased lover. In Very Nice, Marcy Dermansky’s brilliantly funny novel of bad behavior, people fall into relationships through unexpected living arrangements. The authors talk with Charmaine Mok about what dark humour and unexpected angles illuminate in these tales of love affairs gone awry and connections lost and found. Sarah Crossan and Marcy Dermansky will join virtually. In ENGLISH, and available online 24 hours later with CHINESE subtitles.
This event is supported by the Consulate General of Ireland.
