Meet Julia Deck!

You’re 42.  Your husband just left you.  And yesterday, you killed your psychoanalyst.

Author Julia Deck will come to Albertine for a conversation on her riveting debut novel, Viviane, a narrative puzzle that brilliantly intertwines the vaudeville and crime traditions. With Linda Coverdale, her award-winning translator, Julia Deck will discuss how to write a first novel when your masters are Beckett, Perec, and Butor… Budding authors welcome!
