We're delighted to present an evening with novelist and artist Richard Alther in conversation with author and scholar William Kennedy about Alther's new novel Bedside Matters.
Bedside Matters, Alther's fifth novel, enlivens its singular setting with an unexpected journey at life's end for one man.
Walter had mastered the business world at an unaccounted cost to discover in old age and ill-health a disease that would render his body useless. Walter is a complicated man now captured in the gilded cage of his mansion, watching the world, his world, go by without him.
A cinematic non-linear take and frank examination of the promise of life, even at its end, Bedside Matters concern us all at one time or another as we ask the ultimate question: what matters most?
