DIESEL, A Bookstore in Brentwood welcomes Adam Braver to the store to discuss and sign his new novel, The Disappeared on Friday, November 17th at 6:30 pm. Joining him in conversation will be author/editor David Ulin.
A novel of two strangers swept up in the aftermath of two politicized acts of violence. The Disappeared traces a pair of survivors: a woman whose husband is missing in a San Bernardino-type of attack, and a man who believes his sister was an unidentified victim of the '93 World Trade Center bombing. With a remarkable mix of nuance and momentum, Braver portrays their post-trauma experience in the face of relentless public feedback.
Adam Braver is the author of five novels, including Mr. Lincoln's Wars, Divine Sarah, and Crows Over the Wheatfield. Braver's fiction and essays have appeared in journals such as Daedalus, Ontario Review, Cimarron Review, Water-Stone Review, Harvard Review, Tin House, The Normal School, West Branch, The Pinch, and Post Road. He is on faculty and author-in-residence at Roger Williams University in Bristol, RI and he also teaches at the New York State Summer Writers Institute.
David Ulin is the author or editor of eight previous books, including Sidewalking: Coming to Terms with Los Angeles, The Lost Art of Reading: Why Books Matter in a Distracted Time and the Library of America's Writing Los Angeles: A Literary Anthology, which won a California Book Award. A 2015 Guggenheim Fellow, he is a book critic and former book editor of the Los Angeles Times.
