Fiction Reading: Hermione Hoby

Mon, Feb 26 2018 - 8:00pm to 9:00pm
Location: 
Amherst Books

Ann Patchett calls Hermione Hoby “a writer of extreme intelligence, insight, style and beauty” and says, of her brand-new debut novel, Neon in Daylight, “Hermione Hoby paints a garish world that drew me in and held me spellbound. She is a marvel." Hoby writes about culture, especially books, film, music and gender, for numerous publications, for which she has interviewed such actors, writers and pop stars as Toni Morrison, Meryl Streep and Naomi Campbell. She also writes the Stranger of the Week column at The Awl. Hoby grew up in South London and currently lives in Brooklyn. The event will be followed by refreshments.
