Megan Abbott, The End of Everything
Thursday July 7: 7:00PM – 8:00PM
Megan Abbott's Bury Me Deep received the greatest notice of her career; it was nominated for the Los Angeles Time Book Prize, the Hammett Prize, the Anthony, Macavity and Barry Awards and the Edgar Award by Mystery Writers of America. The acclaim propelled Abbott from cult favorite into the mainstream. With The End of Everything Abbott seamlessly bridges the world of crime and straight literary writing and shows why she's one author to watch and why James Ellroy (L.A. Confidential) calls her a "superb storyteller...suffused with a trust artist's passion. Poised to ascend to the top rung of crime writing and quite possibly something beyond."
