Royal River Books is excited to sponsor an author talk with:

Debra Spark, author of Unknown Caller

At Merrill Memorial Library

215 Main Street, Yarmouth, ME

Wednesday, November 16th from 6:30pm to 7:30pm


”We fans of Debra Spark’s work love her dearly for her rich characters, dazzlingly complex emotional landscapes, and gentle irony. I’m glad to say that all of these things are found in joyous abundance in Unknown Caller, which advances its human entanglements in the oblique way that a jigsaw puzzle comes together–a piece of blue sky here, a curl of a sail there–until, voila, we find ourselves holding the whole picture in our hands.”–Lauren Groff, author of Fates and Furies

”Intricate, Pinteresque, and wholly compelling, Debra Spark’s new novel spans countries and decades, messes with time, and continues to upend everything you thought you knew about the characters. It’s masterful and I devoured it.”–Lily King, author of Euphoria

Unknown Caller is a kaleidoscopic, wide-ranging novel about the fragility and durability of family and the near impossibility of knowing the truth about even the people closest to us. Moving unpredictably across the decades, Debra Spark illuminates the secret histories of her characters with uncommon insight and compassion.”–Tom Perrotta, author of Little Children
