Harvard Book Store welcomes DARYL GREGORY—author of Afterparty, The Devil’s Alphabet, and the Shirley Jackson Award–winning novella We Are All Completely Fine—for a discussion of his new novel, Spoonbenders.
Teddy Telemachus is a charming con man with a gift for sleight of hand and some shady underground associates. In need of cash, he tricks his way into a classified government study about telekinesis and its possible role in intelligence gathering. There he meets Maureen McKinnon, and it’s not just her piercing blue eyes that leave Teddy forever charmed, but her mind—Maureen is a genuine psychic of immense and mysterious power. After a whirlwind courtship, they marry, have three gifted children, and become the Amazing Telemachus Family, performing astounding feats across the country.
