At what will surely be a sold-out luncheon at Giuseppe’s Ritrovo with New York Times bestselling author Jami Attenberg, guests will meet and hear from the author about her dazzling new novel, ALL THIS COULD BE YOURS (release date October 22 by Houghton Mifflin Harcourt). With her signature “sparkling prose” and pitch-perfect portrayals, Attenberg offers a timely, piercing exploration of family secrets set in the heat of a New Orleans summer.
A limited number of tickets at $45 per person through Eventbrite will include lunch and Attenberg’s novel, which she will sign after her talk.
A "Most Anticipated" title from: Buzzfeed, BookRiot, LitHub, The Millions, The Week, and Good Housekeeping, ALL THIS COULD BE YOURS is a deep dive into fractured family dynamics. In alternating voices and taking place in one day, Attenberg experty weaves together a chorus of love, betrayal, and inheritance. Paying tribute to unseen New Orleans with a gaze on the powerful and the downtrodden, Attenberg crafts unforgettable characters, puts them in captivating predicaments and, with stunning nuance and depth, sheds light on the inner workings of America. Writing with an unflinching and generous spirit, Attenberg's depiction of the lasting turmoil of a flawed marriage is traced with both humor and compassion. A Publisher's Weekly starred review called ALL THIS COULD BE YOURS a "delectable family saga."
Jami Attenberg is the New York Times best-selling author of seven books of fiction, including The Middlesteins and All Grown Up. She has contributed essays to the New York Times Magazine, the Wall Street Journal, the Sunday Times, and Longreads, among other publications. She lives in New Orleans.
