Jess Walter Discusses his new novel "Beautiful Ruins"--perfect summer reading!

Jun 26 2012 2:00 pm

Celebrate one of the best books of the summer and its author, Jess Walter!
Jess Walter makes a return appearance to Orinda Books on Tuesday, June 26 at 2 PM.
One of our favorite writers—and a superb conversationalist about his work—will be with us this Tuesday. The acclaimed, award-winning author of the national bestseller The Financial Lives of the Poets returns with his funniest, most romantic, and most purely enjoyable novel yet: the story of an almost-love affair that begins on the Italian coast in 1962 . . . and is rekindled in Hollywood fifty years later.
“Why mince words? Beautiful Ruins is an absolute masterpiece.” —Richard Russo
