Ten years ago, aspiring authors loved to hate Nell Freudenberger. Her books won acclaim and big sales, and she was declared one of the New Yorker’s 20 great writers under 40. It’s the kind of celebrity that inspires the bloggy masses to pounce on any slip in ego or talent. But Freudenberger just kept writing. Her latest novel, The Newlyweds, is about a Bangladeshi woman who moves to New York to marry a man she met on the internet. To some, she’s a mail-order bride. In Freudenberger’s hands, the truth is more complex—and more beautifully told—than that. (Elliott Bay Book Company, 1521 10th Ave, 624-6600, 7 pm, free)
