    Lyndsay Faye: The Paragon Hotel @ Bookshop Santa Cruz
    Jan 17 @ 7:00 pm
    “A riveting multilevel thriller of race, sex, and mob violence that throbs with menace as it hums with wit.”—Kirkus Reviews (starred review)   Bookshop is delighted to welcome Lyndsay Faye, author of the best-selling (and staff favorites!) Jane Steele and The Gods of Gotham, for a reading and signing of her new novel, The Paragon Hotel—a historical thriller that follows Alice “Nobody” from Prohibition-era Harlem to Portland’s the Paragon Hotel. Vivid, evocative and meticulously crafted, THE PARAGON HOTEL brilliantly captures the terror of being black in segregated, racist Portland circa 1921, as well as mob-controlled Harlem in the early twentieth century (“A world in which the monsters were the monarchs”). In Faye’s capable hands, the book’s indelible characters and startling historical detail recreate a bygone era completely relevant to today’s social issues. The result is a mesmerizing tale reaffirming Faye’s reputation as a master storyteller, and the language alone is worth the price of admission.   LYNDSAY FAYE is the author of five critically acclaimed books: Jane Steele, which was nominated for an Edgar for Best Novel; Dust and Shadow; The Gods of Gotham; also Edgar-nominated; Seven for a Secret; and The Fatal Flame. Faye, a true New Yorker in the sense she was born elsewhere, lives in New York City with her husband, Gabriel.   For press inquiries, please contact: Katie McKee, Executive Publicity Manager | G.P. Putnam’s Sons/Penguin Random House kmckee@prh.com  (412) 561-1207
