Booksigning: Jacob's Folly by Rebecca Miller

Jacob's Folly

Rebecca Miller will sign her new book Jacob's Folly at 2:00 pm.

A luminous novel--funny and moving in equal measure--that shines with the author's unique talents. Jacob's Folly is a rollicking, ingenious, saucy book, brimful of sparkling, unexpected characters, that takes on desire, faith, love, acting--and reincarnation.

Through the unique lens of Jacob's consciousness, Rebecca Miller explores change in all its different guises--personal, spiritual, literal. The hold of the past on the present, the power of private hopes and dreams, the collision of fate and free will: Miller's world--which is our own, transfigured by her clear gaze and by her sharp, surprising wit--comes brilliantly to life in the pages of this profoundly original novel.

"Marvelous, deep, rich, sexy, transgressive, terrifying, tough, and very, very funny--a great ingathering as multifaceted as a gem, or the eye of a fly!" --Tony Kushner, Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright of "Angels in America"
