Join us for happy hour at the CAT and Two Lines offices to celebrate the release of My Heart Hemmed In, our third book by Marie NDiaye. Stop by after work for a drink and a snack and hear readings from the book by Two Lines staff.
Translated from the French by Jordan Stump, My Heart Hemmed In tells the story of Nadia and her husband Ange, two middle-aged schoolteachers who slowly realize they’re despised by everyone in their community. When a wound mysteriously appears on Ange’s stomach, Nadia desperately tries to save her husband’s life. This leads Nadia on an adventure that propels her out of her small world and into a reality that is deeply troubling and at the same time all-too-familiar.
This event is supported in part by grants from the San Francisco Arts Commission and from San Francisco Grants for the Arts.
