Novelist and past Kundiman faculty Sigrid Nunez released her eighth book, The Friend from Riverhead in February 2018. It tells the story of how a woman copes with grief after the loss of her best friend, and sudden inheritance of his pet Great Dane. One of the most-anticipated books of 2018 by BuzzFeed, Harper's Bazaar, Book Riot, Electric Literature, Chicago Reader, and many more, The Friend is not to be missed. Congrats, Sigrid!
“A brilliant work of fiction about the writing, reading, and literature of grief… This intense, ingenious tale unfolds inside the narrator’s scattered, literary head, and evolves as she becomes obsessed with Apollo’s care while they connect in their grief—and the huge hound proves worthy of his name.” — National Book Review
Sigrid will also be reading with us on March 10, at the AWP Conference in Tampa, Florida. Read the full details on our website here.
