JOIN US TUESDAY, MARCH 31 AT 6 p.m.
LIT Magazine has just launched a new book review and interview series. In this series, we offer a book review, a PDF of part of the book (when possible), and a live interview to be conducted via Zoom on Tuesday nights at 6.
In the first installment, LaVonne Roberts reviews Apartment by Teddy Wayne, which is a novel about two students in Columbia’s MFA program in New York, set in the 1990s. Apartment follows the lives of an unnamed narrator and his budding friendship with classmate Billy, a man with a background far removed—by politics, class, and geography—from the narrator’s own experiences. Once the narrator offers Billy the opportunity to live rent-free in his apartment, the pair’s friendship begins to change. And not for the better. What follows is a subtle, sly page-turner about disconnection and its impact.
The review is available here:
Bloomsbury Publishing has generously offered us a PDF of 1/3 of the novel
