"Piermont Reads" Talk presented by Library Trustee, Dr. Cara Stepanian

Sunday Sep 23, 2018, 2 p.m.

Thomas Berger’s 1980 novel Neighbors is a dark social commentary on suburban life, in which reality clashes with perception. Heralded as a suburban classic alongside such giants as Updike (Rabbit, Run) and Yates (Revolutionary Road), this novel whose pages span just 24 hours, take its readers on a wild and warped ride. This talk will examine Berger’s life and his time in Piermont, while placing Neighbors in context of both time and place – evaluating its relevance today and its place in a modern canon of social reflection.
