William Mcpherson - Testing the Current

Saturday, January 26, 2013 - 6:00pm to 7:00pm

Originally published in 1984, this remarkable first novel from the Pulitzer Prize-winning critic (and founder of the Post’s “Book World” section), is the story of young, privileged Tommy MacAllister. Growing up during the 1930s, his coming-of-age is a gradual discernment that his parents’ graceful, carefree society lives are not what they seem. McPherson will be in conversation with Michael Dirda, The Washington Post’s book critic.
