Presented by City of Asylum @ Alphabet City at City of Asylum @ Alphabet City, Pittsburgh PA

Dec 04 2018
Idra Novey

Award-winning poet, novelist, and translator Idra Novey has produced a novel that explores the consequences of abuse and the public exposure of abuse in the deep and truthful way only fiction can.

Those Who Knew conjures a modern-day fable that shows how public politics and private violence can controvert each other. The story of Those Who Knew offers us a way into understanding the forces—both personal and structural—that conspire in such confounding ways to let abuse against women flourish in our homes, businesses, and governments. In this powerful novel, Novey explores our human capability for hypocrisy and monstrous acts, but also for hope and resilience.
