Aaron Hamburger: Nirvana Is Here
June 5, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Award-winning author Aaron Hamburger (The View from Stalin’s Head, Faith for Beginners) reads from his new novel Nirvana Is Here. When his ex-husband is accused of sexual harassment in the #metoo era, history professor Ari Silverman is forced to confront long-buried trauma from his childhood, where he and his high school crush bonded over the raw emotion of Kurt Cobain’s lyrics in the segregated suburbs of 1990s Detroit. Nirvana Is Here explores issues of identity, race, sex, and family with both poignancy and unexpected humor. “A touching, finely wrought portrait of secrets lying like buried ordinance beneath ordinary lives. The delicacy and observational wit of Aaron Hamburger’s prose are a marvel.”–Louis Bayard, author of Courting Mr. Lincoln
