Join us to celebrate Nona Caspers' latest book, the novel, The Fifth Woman. Publisher’s Weekly said, “This gem of a collection is a transcendent portrayal of bereavement, showing how death elevates the mundane and affects everything humans do, see and think.”  The San Francisco Chronicle called the book “… mesmerizing, moving…”

Years after Caspers's unnamed narrator loses her first lover in a tragic accident, she finds herself wondering, "What did she want from me? What are the things that matter?" In vivid, richly detailed vignettes, the book tracks the cyclical nature of grief and remembrance across a life fractured by loss. At times dryly comical, at other times radiantly surreal,The Fifth Woman is a testament to the resurrecting power of memory and enduring love.

Caspers will share the stage with special guest Brian Thorstenson, a San Francisco based writer, teacher and occasional performer.  Brian will read from his poetry and performance work.  Author signing and book sale by Dog Eared Books Castro to follow event.
