Elliot Holt and Nicola Keegan Read at Berkeley Books

July 5, 2017 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Elliott Holt was born and raised in Washington, D.C. A former copywriter who has worked at advertising agencies in Moscow, London, Paris, and New York. Her first novel You Are One of Them was a New York Times Book Review Editors’ Choice, longlisted for the Flaherty-Dunnan first novel prize from the Center for Fiction, and a finalist for the National Book Critics Circle’s inaugural John Leonard Award for a first book.

Nicola Keegan was born in Galway, brought up in America and now divides her time between Ireland and France with her husband and three children. Swimming, her first novel, was met with excellent reviews from all corners. A quote from the reviewer at The Independent: “Nicola Keegan’s prose is filled with inventive riffs to draw out the poignant turbulences of her heroine, both in the water and out. Reading the book becomes itself like a long, sinuous surge through the pool. It’s a narrative with a strong rhythmic flow which enables Keegan to compress the passage of time, taking us forwards in gentle glides and sudden bursts.”

I’m looking forward to this reading like nobody’s business.
