Author Talk: The Cold Hard Light by Christopher Amenta

October 13, 2022 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Jamaica Plain resident Christopher Amenta will talk about his new book The Cold Hard Light on Thursday, October 13, 2022,  6:00 PM – 7:00 PM
Jamaica Plain Branch Library (30 South St.)
Set in present-day Boston, The Cold Hard Light tells the story of a young father, named H, who becomes obsessed with the man who assaulted his sister. The novel takes place a decade after the crime occurred, when the assailant is released from prison. It explores the drama of modern American urban life, where the poor work gig jobs that cater to the rich, where race can be weaponized, guns are treated like toys, and the desire to blame others trumps the need to understand them.
