Love Will Tear Us Apart: Jami Attenberg & J.R. Moehringer at Newtonville Books

Screwed over by passion, saved by alcohol: Newtonville has another cathartic double billing of deliciously dysfunctional fiction for the sulkies and sensies. First up is Jami Attenberg and her debut novel, Instant Love, which is about a group of young woman whose love lives are more unpredictable than Paris Hilton’s. J. R. Moehringer follows with The Tender Bar, a memoir about his fatherless upbringing in Manhasset, New York, a place rich in both pubs and abandonment metaphors. Find yourself a lonely stranger and sob in synch tomorrow night for a Books & Brews event at Newtonville Books, 296 Walnut St, Newton | 7:30 pm | free | 617.244.6619.
