Author Stewart O'Nan at story booth in Crosstown Arts


Tonight at 6 p.m., I'll be talking with Stewart O'Nan, author of 15 novels including the highly acclaimed West of Sunset

The New Yorker said of this writer: “O’Nan’s adroitness with atmosphere and period detail makes Fitzgerald’s dreams of creating worthy work, even with his best days behind him, absorbing and poignant.”

And George Saunders says, “O’Nan is an incredibly versatile and charming writer. This novel, which imagines F. Scott Fitzgerald’s troubled time in Hollywood (with cameos by Dorothy Parker, Bogie, and  Hemingway), takes up (like much of O’Nan’s work) that essential conundrum of grace struggling with paucity. One brilliant American writer meditating on another–what’s not to love?”
