300 NE Second Ave., Miami, Fl 33132 United States
David Yoon‘s City of Orange: A Novel is an end-of-the-world story about reassembling the things that make us who we are and finding our way back home. A man wakes up in an unknown landscape, injured and alone. He used to live in a place called California. How did he wind up here with a head wound and a bottle of pills in his pocket? Growing up Black in rural North Carolina, Ray McMillian, the main character in Brendan Slocumb’s The Violin Conspiracy: A Novel, has his life mapped out. But he knows there is a musician within him and he is determined to become a world-class violinist. When a beat-up family fiddle turns out to be a priceless Stradivarius, his dreams seem within reach – then the violin is stolen, and he must reclaim it. Moderated by James Meader, vice president and associate publisher of Vintage Backlist.
