Litquake is thrilled to welcome Lysley Tenorio to our Seismic Salon series! Of his recent novel The Son of Good Fortune (paperback due April 13), Refinery 29 writes: “Tenorio’s brilliant, witty novel about the love of a mother and son, the immigrant experience in America, and the surreality of our current reality, is bold, ambitious, and unforgettable.” He is also author of the story collection Monstress, which was named a book of the year by the San Francisco Chronicle and adapted for the stage by The American Conservatory Theater. He is the recipient of a National Endowment for the Arts fellowship, a Whiting Award, a Stegner fellowship, the Edmund White Award, and the Rome Prize from the American Academy of Arts and Letters, as well as residencies from the MacDowell Colony, Yaddo, and the Bogliasco Foundation. His stories have appeared in The AtlanticZoetrope: All-Story, and Ploughshares. Born in the Philippines, he lives in San Francisco, and is a professor at Saint Mary’s. Prep your favorite cocktail and ask the very entertaining Lysley about how he manages to move between short and long fiction.

Buy Lysley Tenorio’s books at the Litquake Bookshop.

Seismic Salons are a series of fundraisers offering conversation time with A-list authors for 10 lucky participants. All proceeds benefit Litquake’s on-going programs.
