Claire Messud: The Burning Girl


Central Library (map) Downtown
Fri., Nov. 10, 7 p.m. 2017


Claire Messud writes intense, engrossing novels, and earned plenty of awards and praise for her previous works that include The Woman Upstairs, The Last Life, and The Emperor's Children. Her latest book, The Burning Girl, is about a whirlwind friendship between two preteen girls. According to Dwight Garner at The New York Times, it lacks Messud's signature sharpness and voice—he describes the new book as "oddly distant," "formal," and "ultimately unconvincing."
