Six Bridges Book Festival: Andrew Sean Greer & Justin Torres

Andrew Sean Greer is the Pulitzer Prize–winning author of six works of fiction, including the bestsellers The Confessions of Max Tivoli and Less. In the Less sequel Less Is Lost, for Arthur Less, life is going surprisingly well. But nothing lasts: the death of an old lover and a sudden financial crisis have Less running away from his problems yet again as he accepts a series of literary gigs that send him zigzagging across the country.

Justin Torres’s extraordinary novel of creative imagination, Blackouts, mines lost histories―personal and collective. Out in the desert in a place called the Palace, a young man tends to a dying soul, someone he once knew briefly but who has haunted the edges of his life. As Juan waits for his end, he and the narrator trade stories―moments of joy and oblivion―and resurrect lost loves, lives, mothers, fathers, minor heroes.
