Co-presented with TOWN HALL ARTS & CULTURE.

We are delighted to help celebrate the publication of Seattle native Claire Dederer’s dazzling new memoir, Love and Trouble: A Midlife Reckoning (Knopf). She is over from her Bainbridge Island home, and she is on to something with what is a book of reckoning, considering the woman she is now, as against the woman she thought she would be.

“Edgy, frank, and outright hilarious…This candid memoir will resonate with women (and quite possibly men) of all ages, but particularly those in midlife. Dederer brings a startling intimacy and immediacy to her version of growing up female in America.” —Publishers Weekly.  

“In equal parts hilarious and haunting, Love and Trouble captures the ways in which our past selves are never really past. In loose, edgy, confident prose, Claire Dederer peels back layer after layer of herself as an erotic creature, and in so doing has crafted a book that grabs the reader in an utterly visceral way. This is an exciting, daring memoir.” —Dani Shapiro.

Claire Dederer’s first book was the national bestseller, Poser: My Life in Twenty-Three Yoga Poses. This should be a delight.
