The following description comes from the event organizer.

Meet a woman as tenacious as Elizabeth Strout’s Olive Kitteridge and as irresistible as Andrew Sean Greer’s Arthur Less: Honey Fasinga, the glamorous daughter of a notorious New Jersey mobster, is returning home at last, ready to reckon with her violent past. As a rebellious teenager, Honey managed to escape her father’s circle of influence and reinvent herself in a world of art and beauty, working for a high-end auction house in Los Angeles. Now in her twilight years, she decides to return home and unexpectedly falls in love. But in her family, nothing has changed. When her grandnephew Michael bursts into her life in what appears to be a drug-fueled frenzy, and her Lexus gets jacked, it’s hard to keep minding her own business. As old cruelties begin to resurface, Honey is no longer sure what she really wants — to forgive or to avenge. Honey (Harper), the electrifying literary breakout from PEN USA Award-winning author Victor Lodato, is a masterful and deeply moving portrait of love in all its forms, of moral ambiguity, and of inspiring change — a story of female rage that asks the question: What are the limits of compassion in a world gone mad? Lodato will be joined in conversation by Chris Rush, author of The Light Years.
