Helen Phillips with Ramona Ausubel - The Need

Motherhood, an Intruder, a Thriller Book Talk & Signing

Helen Phillips is the award-winning author of Some Possible Solutions and The Beautiful Bureaucrat. She will discuss and sign The Need ($26.00 Simon & Schuster), a subversive, speculative thriller that comes to life through blazing, arresting prose and gorgeous, haunting imagery. Molly finds herself face-to-face with an intruder who knows far too much about her and her family. As she attempts to protect those she loves most, Molly must also acknowledge her own frailty. Molly slips down an existential rabbit hole where she must confront the dualities of motherhood: the ecstasy and the dread; the languor and the ferocity; the banality and the transcendence as the book hurtles toward a mind-bending conclusion.

Phillips will be joined by Ramona Ausubel, author of multiple novels and short story collections such as Awayland.
