Gunn Memorial Library is pleased to welcome author Fiona Davis, for a talk and signing of her latest national bestselling novel, The Address, on
Ms. Davis, author of The Dollhouse, returns with The Address, a compelling novel about the thin lines between love and loss, success and ruin, passion and madness, all hidden behind the walls of The Dakota, New York City’s most famous residence. Fiona tells two, eventually intertwining, stories that take place 100 years apart. With rich historical detail, nuanced characters, and gorgeous prose, Davis once again delivers a compulsively readable novel that peels back the layers of not only a famed institution, but the lives –and lies–of the beating hearts within.
“Davis has folded together two historical eras in this breezy historical novel that jumps between Gilded Age and Reagan-era New York City…[she] overlays the two histories beautifully…The book, rife with historical description and architectural detail, will appeal to design and history buffs alike.”—Publishers Weekly
