Harvard Book Store and Mass Humanities welcome PATRICK DACEY, author of the short story collection We’ve Already Gone This Far, for a discussion of his first novel, The Outer Cape.
Robert and Irene Kelly were a golden couple of the late ‘70s—she an artist, he a businessman, each possessed by dynamism and vibrancy. But with two young boys to care for, Irene finds herself confined by the very things she’d dreamed of having. Robert, pressured by Irene’s demands and haunted by the possibility of failure, risks the family business to pursue a fail-safe real estate opportunity.
This event is co-sponsored with Mass Humanities.
The Outer Cape is available for purchase at the event for 20% off.
No ticket purchase necessary for attendance.
Certain books were “banned in Boston” at least as far back as 1651, when one William Pynchon wrote a book criticizing Puritanism.
