Join Jenny Offill for a reading and discussion of her new novel, The Dept. of Speculation, in which Offill confronts the familiar trickinesses of marriage and motherhood—a colicky baby, faltering commitment, and stalled ambition—in precise prose which moves with startling agility between the quotidian and philosophical. Lydia Millet calls it a “heartbreaking and exceptional book by a writer who doesn’t settle for less.” With Lorin Stein, editor of The Paris Review.
