A Reading with Micah Perks and Elizabeth Graver

  • Papercuts JP 5 Green Street Jamaica Plain, MA 02130 (map)

Join us for a reading and conversation with Micah Perks, author of “True Love and Other Dreams of Miraculous Escape” and Elizabeth Graver, author of “The End of the Point”.

Praise for "The End of the Point”

“With her fourth and most emotionally textured novel, Graver proves herself a master chronicler of the ever-spiraling human comedy.  The End of the Point is a work of uncommon gracefulness, as much in its boundless empathy as in the luminosity of its prose.”–Jan Stuart, The Boston Globe

“Eloquent . . . Graver’s engaging, expansive storytelling allows us to take up residence inside the mind of a host of different characters, watching as they create their own pictures of the world around them, as they invest certain places and people with mythical significance.”  –Alida Becker, The New York Times

Praise for “True Love”

 "A writer whose stories are endearingly hard headed and tender hearted, and whose characters are so very alive that they practically escape off the page when you encounter them. This collection will cure what ails you.” Kelly Link

 “What an enticing cast of characters readers get to meet here!  Micah Perks writes so well of love in many of its forms and stages, and she populates her book with such a memorable crew. No one is exempt from struggle and disappointment, and yet there is always a chance for transcendence, too." Aimee Bender
