Six Bridges Book Festival: Hilary Leichter & Ben Purkert
In Hilary Leichter’s Terrace Story, Annie, Edward, and their daughter find a beautiful terrace hidden in the closet of their cramped apartment. But every bit of extra space has a hidden cost, and the terrace sets off a seismic chain of events, forever changing the shape of the world.
Ben Purkert’s debut novel The Men Can’t Be Saved tackles a haunting question: What do our jobs do to our souls? In this startlingly original examination of work, sex, addiction, religion, branding, and ourselves, Seth is a junior copywriter whose latest tagline just went viral. He tries to discover his spiritual self by day, while popping illegal prescription pills by night and straying farther from salvation.
