The 2017 Whiting Award winner joins us for the paperback publication of her unforgettable debut novel about love, luck, and the inextricability of life and art. The national bestseller weaves together two seemingly disparate stories of a young American editor in New York and an Iraqi-American man who, on his way to visit his brother in Kurdistan, is detained by immigration officers. In conversation with author Alice Gregory (The New Yorker).
“A scorchingly intelligent first novel . . . Asymmetry will make you a better reader, a more active noticer. It hones your senses.” —Parul Seghal, The New York Times
