Editorial Reviews

This installment of the Thalia Book Club at Symphony Space features a dramatic reading of author Aimee Bender's The Particular Sadness of Lemon Cake by actress Lillo Way, followed by a conversation between Bender and writer and Believereditor Heidi Julavits. Bender discusses her inspiration for the novel, her writing process, her unique magical realist style, and her challenges and anxieties, both in terms of being a writer and being a person. She also takes thought-provoking questions about the book from the audience.
