Amanda Filipacchi, one of America’s most bewitching authors retells the story of Pygmalion with a sharp jagged edge inVAPOR. Cited by Time Out New York as “wildly imaginative and intelligent,” Filipacchi takes readers on one of this summer’s most wild and twisted rides. A warped romance between two unlikely souls, VAPOR will haunt readers long after they’ve read the last page.
In addition to VAPOR, Filipacchi’s other two novels will be discussed. NUDE MEN has been hailed by The Chicago Tribune as “A quirky, unpredictable comedy of contemporary urban morals.” LOVE CREEPS has been described by American novelist Bret Easton Ellis as “A fast-moving surrealistic sex farce about fear, seduction and stalking in Manhattan.”
AMANDA FILIPACCHI has been described by the New York Times Book Review as a “lovely comic surrealist.” Her books have been translated into 13 languages and her non-fiction has appeared in The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal and the Atlantic. Her novels have been called “hilarious and thought-provoking” by Tama Janowitz and “whimsical and subversive” by Edmund White. Filipacchi earned her MFA in fiction writing from Columbia University.
