Jess Walter reads from "Beautiful Ruins"

Thursday, Apr 18, 2013 7:30p
Mrs. Dalloway's Berkeley, CA

The story begins in 1962, where, on a rocky patch of the Italian coastline, a young innkeeper spies a tall, thin woman, a vision in white, approaching him on a boat. She is an actress, he soon learns, an American starlet, and she is dying. Cut to the present, when an elderly Italian man shows up at a movie studio searching for the mysterious woman he last saw decades earlier.

What unfolds is a dazzling, yet deeply human, roller coaster of a novel, spanning fifty years and nearly as many lives.
