Evgenia Citkowitz - The Shades — in conversation with Kay Redfield Jamison

Upcoming Event
Monday, June 25, 2018 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm

Citkowitz follows Ether, her accomplished debut novella and stories, with a haunting portrait of grief and the unraveling of a marriage. The narrative follows Catherine and Michael Hall, now living apart a year after the death of their sixteen-year-old-daughter. While Michael has tried to resume his London life, Catherine, who ran a gallery, has grown reclusive, retreating to an old country house in Kent, and their son has escaped to a boarding school. Then a mysterious young woman approaches Catherine, claiming to have once lived in her house.  But what initially seems friendly and straightforward soon becomes something darker. Writing with the intensity of a gothic novel, Citkowitz explores the elusiveness of the past and the unstable emotional terrain of love and loss. Citkowitz will be in conversation with Kay Redfield Jamison, author most recently of Robert Lowell.
