Greenlight welcomes author Stephanie LaCava to our events stage in celebration of her newest novel, I Fear My Pain Interests You—an absurdist novel about fame, culture and connections, bodies and breakdowns. Margot’s on her way to Montana, with blood on her face and a jeweled cigarette case full of pills. She’s fresh from a bad breakup and fleeing the cold comforts of her famous family—legendary punk parents and an overbearing show business scion of a grandmother. What unfolds next is a jarringly sensual story about the peculiarities of our bodies and the impossibilities of our families, and a young woman trying to find a way forward with both. Join us on Flatbush Ave. to celebrate "the cool girl book of the year" (Jordan Richman, 032c), where Stephanie will be joined by author and critic Merve Emre for an evening of reading and conversation.
