Writers and brothers Austin Grossman (Soon I Will Be Invincible, You) and Lev Grossman (The Magicians Trilogy) return to Greenlight to discuss their most recent works, which infuse everyday life with the thrill of the uncanny. In a master work of alternative history and Lovecraftian suspense, Austin’s brand-new novel Crooked asks: what if Richard Nixon, our most reviled president, was really a pivotal figure caught in a desperate struggle between ordinary life and horrors from another reality? Lev’s trilogy of books The Magicians, The Magician King, and The Magician’s Land (just released in paperback), bring the spellcasting of C. S. Lewis and J. K. Rowling into a very real world, where sex, self-interest, and thwarted good intentions have a way of affecting the magical (and vice versa). Join us for a unique conversation with two talented authors exploring their “realist magic” worlds.
