The Book of V.
Sun Nov 1 | Noon
“The engrossing, highly readable, darkly sexy third novel by Anna Solomon…The Book of V. is a
meditation on female power and powerlessness, the stories told about women and the ones we tell about and to ourselves.” ―The New York Times Book Review.
For fans of The Hours, a bold, kaleidoscopic novel intertwining the lives of three women across three centuries as their stories of sex, power, and desire finally converge in the present day.
Anna Solomon is the author of Leaving Lucy Pear and The Little Bride, and a two-time winner of the Pushcart Prize. Her short fiction and essays have appeared in publications including The New York Times Magazine, One Story, Ploughshares, Slate, and more. Coeditor with Eleanor Henderson of Labor Day: True Birth Stories by Today’s Best Women Writers, Solomon was born and raised in Gloucester, Massachusetts, and lives in Brooklyn with her husband and two children.
