Melissa Broder - The Pisces — in conversation with Tayla Burney

Upcoming Event
Friday, May 4, 2018 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm

Creator of the Twitter account @sosadtoday, Broder continues her exploration of anxiety and obsession in a novel that starts dark, turns fantastical, and stays wise and funny throughout. The narrative follows Lucy as she leaves Phoenix for Venice Beach, hoping to recover from a stalled dissertation and a brutal breakup. But neither distance nor a love addiction therapy group nor dog-sitting relieve her melancholy. Then she falls for a swimmer she meets late one night. As she learns more about him, he turns her life upside down and she faces the question of how to carry on a relationship with a merman. Broder, a poet, Pushcart Award-winner, and columnist for Elle, will be in conversation with producer and writer Tayla Burney.
