Chuckanut Radio Hour Featuring Laura Kalpakian

Signing/Readings

Hollywood, 1953: From the beach at Malibu to leafy Laurel Canyon, from the sound-stages of Empire Pictures to jazz clubs on Central Avenue, Roxanne Granville bravely defies the era she was born to. Enmeshed in a swirling cauldron of blacklist politics, deceit and forbidden love, her many secrets make her vulnerable to ruin. A novel about aspiration and desperation and un-regretted folly. Laura Kalpakian is the author of sixteen novels and four collections of short fiction published in the US and the UK. Recipient of a National Endowment for the Arts Fellowship in Fiction, and nominated for the 2007 International IMPAC Dublin Literary Award, her work has garnered acclaim on both sides of the Atlantic.
