“Wry and rueful.... Quirky and languorous, [Greer’s] style beautifully captures his characters’ wistful self-consciousness.” —The San Francisco Chronicle
“Sloane Crosley has a gift. In a single piece she can find a way to be funny, familiar, removed and generously personal.” —The Globe And Mail
Andrew Sean Greer is the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of six works of fiction, including the bestsellers The Confessions of Max Tivoli and Less. Sloane Crosley is the author of The New York Times bestselling essay collections I Was Told There’d Be Cake, How Did You Get This Number and Look Alive Out There. Both are gifted storytellers, keen observers of human nature and masterful with their use of humor. Reading them makes you feel like you’ve known them forever. But there the similarities end. Greer’s wit is subtle, poignant and gentle. Crosley’s is loud, brash and thigh-slappingly funny. She has been described by David Sedaris as “perfectly, relentlessly funny.” He has been described by Michael Chabon as “feeling and funny.” A sort of a literary yin and yang, their conversation is sure to be both entertaining and enlightening.
