Author Curtis White, the man Paul Auster called "a master of bewitchments," reads from his work. Lacking Character (Melville House, 2018) is his first novel in 20 years. "A comic, absurd delight. ... White is a postmodern master, and in this wild satire he transforms the banal into magic." — Publishers Weekly. Free.
