Garth Greenwell - What Belongs to You

Upcoming Event
Sunday, January 15, 2017 - 5:00pm to 6:00pm

Now available in paperback, Greenwell’s haunting debut novel is the story of a young American man teaching in Sofia, Bulgaria, and his intermittent relationship with a hustler named Mitko. The narrative extends over the course of several years, charting first the protagonist’s irresistible attraction to Mitko’s brash confidence and beauty, then his fear of Mitko’s reckless violence. When the men meet again after a two-year separation, the relationship resumes on slightly different terms. Winner of the 2010 Miami University Novella Prize for Mitko, Greenwell has lived in Sofia and his lyrical, raw language vividly conveys the city’s decaying charm as well as the characters’ tremendous passions.
