Lorrie Moore | A Gate at the Stairs

Tue, September 22, 2009 7:30 P.M.
Parkway Central Library

Cost: FREE

Lorrie Moore "writes with such psychological precision, such sharp, unsentimental knowledge of her characters' hopes and fears" that her stories possess "a heartfelt understanding of the precariousness of everyday life," wrote Michiko Kakutani in the New York Times. Moore is the author of the widely praised short story collections Birds of America, Like Life, and Self-Help. Set in post-9/11 America, her long-awaited new novel examines the heart of racism, the shock of war, and carelessness perpetrated against people in the name of love.
