WATCH: Lisa Taddeo in Conversation with Zosia Mamet
Hosted by Greenlight Bookstore
Greenlight welcomes back New York Times bestselling author of Three Women Lisa Taddeo to launch her new collection of prize-winning stories.
The nine stories in Ghost Lover bring to life the fever of obsession, the blindness of love, and the mania of grief. Behind anonymous screens, an army of cool and beautiful girls manage the dating service Ghost Lover, a forwarding system for text messages that promises to spare you the anguish of trying to stay composed while communicating with your crush. At a star-studded political fundraiser in a Los Angeles mansion, a trio of women compete to win the heart of the slick guest of honor. Taddeo—nominated by Esquire as “our most eloquent and faithful chronicler of human desire”—is joined in conversation by Zosia Mamet.
