    Matthew Klam launches his long-awaited first novel Who is Rich?, following his critically acclaimed short story collection Sam the Cat. Unfolding over four days, Who is Rich? is a warped and exhilarating study in midlife alienation, bitterness, lust, and love. Rich Fischer is a once-sort-of-famous, now struggling cartoonist, and husband and father of two. Amy O’Donnell is a forty-one-year-old painting student, mother of three, wife to a brutish Wall Street titan who commutes to work via helicopter. Rich and Amy are reunited at the eccentric summer arts conference where drum circles happen on the beach at midnight, clothing optional. Will they rescue each other or destroy each other? Jennifer Egan says, “Who Is Rich? is an electric amalgam of frustration and tenderness, wonder and rebellion.” Klam launches his first novel (and first book in 16 years) at Greenlight in conversation with New York Times bestselling author Meg Wolitzer.

    Zinzi Clemmons’s debut novel What We Lose is both a luminous coming-of-age story of a young African-American woman and a deeply felt meditation on race, sex, country, and loss. Raised in Pennsylvania, Thandi views the world of her mother's childhood in Johannesburg as both impossibly distant and ever present. She is an outsider wherever she goes, caught between being black and white, American and not. She tries to connect these dislocated pieces of her life, and as her mother succumbs to cancer, Thandi searches for an anchor—someone, or something, to love. Told in exquisite and emotional vignettes, Clemmons creates a stunning portrayal of what it means to choose to live, after loss. What We Lose has been named one of the Most Anticipated Books of the season by Buzzfeed, Elle, Cosmopolitan and more. Clemmons is joined in conversation with Margo Jefferson, writer and author of the memoir Negroland, followed by a Q&A and signing.
