Join us Thursday October 20th, 7pm when Berkeley author ERIK TARLOFF comes to Mrs. Dalloway's to read from and discuss his new novel, Tell Me the Truth About Love.
To register for this event, you must sign up on Eventbrite or register at the store in person at least 24 hours prior to the event.
A novel about sexual love, straight and queer, about love between friends, between exes, between parents and children, between lovers old and new, Erik Tarloff’s Tell Me the Truth About Love tells the story of Toby Lindeman, a divorced man in San Francisco leading what appears to be an enviable bachelor’s life. Suave, attractive, somewhat detached from the emotional needs of those around him, he seems to sail blithely above life’s common difficulties as he goes about his duties as chief fundraiser for the San Francisco Opera.
But then, to his own surprise, he falls passionately in love with the most inappropriate woman possible, the long-time mistress of the powerful man on whom his own future seems to depend. As Toby navigates the risks of this relationship, encountering heartbreak and professional catastrophe along the way, he also finds himself reconnecting on a much deeper level with all the people in his life. Suspenseful, sexy, and often laugh-out-loud funny, Tell Me the Truth About Love is a very contemporary look at the varieties of human connection.
ERIK TARLOFF has written extensively for the screen, both large and small, and for publications including Slate, The Atlantic, The New York Times, The Washington Post, The Financial Times, and many others. He is the author of three plays, Something to Hide, Another Weekend in the Country, and Cedars. He currently lives in Berkeley, California with his wife, economist Laura Tyson. This is his fifth novel.
