Acclaimed writer and Bronx-native Peter Quinn will read from his new novel, Dry Bones.
Dry Bones is the final part of three installments that began with the Hour of the Catand The Man Who Never Returned, historical mysteries that trace the life of a detective from the fall of the Third Reich up through the Cuban Revolution. This final novel of the trilogy tells the story of an ill-fated OSS mission into the heart of the Eastern front and its consequences more than a decade after the war’s end.
“Peter Quinn is a poet and an historian and one of our finest storytellers. He sits at the fireside of the American imagination. He can carve mystery out of mystery. The work is generous and agile and profound.” — Novelist Colum McCann
