Taffy Brodesser-Akner - Fleishman Is in Trouble — in conversation with Jake Tapper

Upcoming Event
Thursday, June 20, 2019 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm

A staff writer for The New York Times Magazine, Brodesser-Akner has published popular stories on topics ranging from Weight Watchers to young Orthodox Jews to film stars. In her first novel she puts her keen insight and acute cultural awareness to deft use in a funny and smart portrait of modern marriage. The story opens with Dr. Toby Fleishman reveling in post-divorce life—he’s free of his ambitious wife, is beginning to feel optimistic about life again, and, thanks to dating apps, he’s surrounded by love interests. Then one day his ex-wife drops off the kids and disappears, throwing Toby’s life into chaos. As he struggles to figure out what happened, he has to revise his ideas about himself, his family, and his marriage. Brodesser-Akner will be in conversation with Jake Tapper, host of CNN’s The Lead and author of The Hellfire Club.
