 Picador Reading with Fiona Maazel on May 15 

Submitted by Christina Harms on Wed, 05/30/2012 - 17:31

On May 15, 2012, the current Picador Professor Fiona Maazel read from her new novel Woke Up Lonely at the Centraltheater Leipzig. The novel will be published in the spring of 2013 by Graywolf Press and is, as Maazel writes on her website, "about a cult leader, his ex-wife, and the four people he takes hostage. It's about loneliness. North Korea. A city under the city of Cincinnati. Labial reconstruction. Cloud seeding. Motherhood. But mostly it's just a big old love story." At the reading, Fiona Maazel also reflected on the beginnings of her writing career, her experiences teaching creative writing, and her first impressions of her time in Leipzig.
