Marisha Pessl Reading & Booksigning

22 Aug 2013

On Thursday, August 22, 7pm at Malaprop's Bookstore/Cafe, Marisha Pessl, Asheville native and New York Times bestselling author of the blockbuster debut novel "Special Topics in Calamity Physics," will present her new novel, "Night Film." A brilliant literary thriller, "Night Film" tells the story of investigative journalist Scott McGrath, as he sets out to discover the truth behind the apparent suicide of Ashley Cordova. Ashley is the daughter of a reclusive cult-horror film director who has not been seen in public in over 30 years. Driven by revenge, curiosity, and a need for the truth, McGrath is drawn deeper and deeper into Cordova’s eerie, hypnotic world. Bestselling author Lee Child praises "Night Film" as “beautifully imagined, beautifully written, and hypnotically suspenseful,” while Library Journal calls it “this summer’s Gone Girl: a completely absorbing literary thriller.”

This event is free and open to the public.
