James Lasdun EventJoin us on Saturday, April 27th at 6:00 p.m. as James Lasdun reads and discusses his book Afternoon of a Faun.

When an old flame accuses him of sexual assault, journalist Marco Rosedale is brought rapidly and inexorably to the brink of ruin. His reputation and livelihood at stake, Marco confides in a close friend, who finds himself caught between the obligations of friendship and an urgent desire to uncover the truth.

"Afternoon of a Faun is a brilliantly imagined, devastatingly insightful and powerfully rendered novel of sexual exploitation and betrayal. Like all of James Lasdun's work, it is meticulously written and intelligent, both a novel of ideas and a cautionary tale for the #MeToo era. Its ending is bitterly ironic, or perhaps just darkly funny, depending upon one's perspective-and Afternoon of a Faun is about the very drama of 'perspective.'"-Joyce Carol Oates, author of American Martyr 

James Lasdun is the author of Afternoon of a Faun, The Fall Guy, The Horned Man, and Seven Lies, several poetry and short story collections, and a memoir. The recipient of a Guggenheim Fellowship, he teaches creative writing at The New School and lives in upstate New York.
