This event will be held at Oblong Books & Music, 6422 Montgomery St., Rhinebeck, NY.
Share this event on Facebook! At this event, author/illustrator Mark Siegel will discuss his graphic novel Sailor Twain: Or: A Mermaid on the Hudson. A mysterious and beguiling love story with elements of Poe, Twain, Hemingway, and Greek mythology, drawn in moody black-and-white charcoal. One hundred years ago. On the foggy Hudson River, a riverboat captain rescues an injured mermaid from the waters of the busiest port in the United States. A wildly popular, and notoriously reclusive, author makes a public debut. A French nobleman seeks a remedy for a curse, and as three lives twine together and race to an unexpected collision, the mystery of the Mermaid of the Hudson deepens.
Siegel was born in Ann Arbor, Michigan, and grew up in France. He is the editorial director of First Second Publishing and an accomplished writer and illustrator. He is the illustrator of To Dance: A Ballerina's Graphic Novel, a Robert F. Sibert Award Honor Book, written by his wife, Siena Cherson Siegel; and author and illustrator of the picture book Moving House, published by Roaring Brook Press.
"This is a gripping novel with compelling characters, enhanced by haunting, erotically charged drawings."--John Irving
"This extraordinary work of fiction pushes the graphic novel well beyond its previous limits. The narrative takes us on many journeys through space and time, but is more than a mere tale. It's about past and present, the absolute importance of myth, of language, of stories themselves. In superb words and drawings, it also explores obsession and love in a way that is original to the genre, and to literature itself. In the best sense, the completed work succeeds in a very difficult task: making the reader more human. Bravo!" Pete Hamill, author of Tabloid City
"A romance in the truest sense of the word, Sailor Twain is a marvel of graphical beauty and complex, intelligent storytelling. Siegel creates a misty, magical Hudson river that is somehow realer and truer and mroe seductive and many fathoms deeper than the real thing." Lev Grossman, author of The Magician King
