Marcy Dermansky: The Red Car

Marcy Dermansky: <i>The Red Car</i>

Whitney Lawson Marcy Dermansky

With Bad Marie, Marcy Dermansky stretched the contours of tragedy and comedy to create a genre unlike anything else. With The Red Car, she pushes boundaries even further. Meet Leah, a young woman living with a miserable husband in Queens. She receives word that her former boss has died and left her a red sports car. What follows is an erotic — and possibly haunted — journey along California's coastal highways as Leah revisits her past and rethinks her future. Combining Haruki Murakami–inspired fabulism with the sexual realism of Jennifer Weiner, The Red Car is one of the most original novels published this year. Greenlight hosts the launch party, where the author will read from her work and discuss it with Emily St. John Mandel, author of the 2014 postapocalyptic sensation Station Eleven.
