Description
This hilarious, original, tour de force takes NYT best-selling author Gloria Nagy’s scalding, clear-eyed view of life in the absolute present and pulls out all narrative stops. Fast, furious, and laugh-out-loud funny, REMAIN CALM is a look at ourselves and the astonishing way life’s curve balls can turn what starts as utter terror into exactly what we need. Nagy has been aptly compared to Tom Wolfe and Woody Allen, among others. Her ability to layer her work, combining literary illusion, keen reporting, wonderful story-telling and deep empathy, sadness, and truth under the farce on the surface, puts her own stamp on this and her other work. Covering everything from sex, seniors, salsa, and the stress of twenty-first century reality, here she just goes for it. This is a “poquito” novel, without a metaphor or narrative drive to spare.
