A. M. HolmesAward-winning novelist and short story writer A.M. Homes visited Amsterdam to discuss her new novel This Book Will Save Your Life. It is a portrait of estrangement in the surreal netherworld of contemporary Los Angeles. Her work has been called “provocative” and “dangerous”, and specializes in bringing dark impulses and twisted tendencies to the surface. A.M. Homes is the recipient of a Guggenheim Fellowship. Her work appears frequently in Art Forum, Vanity Fair, The New Yorker and The New York Times Magazine.

The evening was moderated by noted Belgian novelist and literature professor Kristien Hemmerechts.
