Susan Jane Gilman - Donna Has Left the Building

Upcoming Event
Sunday, June 23, 2019 - 5:00pm to 6:00pm

Gilman burst onto the literary scene with a trio of witty, whip-smart memoirs that exploded received notions of what women can and should do. She extended this exploration into fiction with her bestselling The Ice Cream Queen of Orchard Street, following the exploits of a Russian immigrant from the 1910s to the 1980s. In her second novel she focuses on a woman very much of today. The eponymous Donna is a forty-five-year old wife and mother of two teenagers who works in the high-end kitchenware business—an utterly conventional lifestyle that belies her past as a hard-drinking punk rocker. Then she returns early from a business trip, walks in on a scene that shocks her—and embarks on an epic road trip to re-discover the passion, art, and friendships that had once been the lodestars of her life.
