Super in the City: A Super/Novelist’s Reflections on a Greenwich Village Life
An Evening with Daphne Uviller
For Part Two of our Women Authors of Greenwich Village mini-series, join Daphne Uviller, a third-generation Greenwich Villager, at the first public reading and discussion of her debut novel, Super in the City, a comic mystery based on her experiences as the super of her family’s brownstone. The book is a love letter to the city, and Uviller is besotted. Publisher’s Weekly praised it as “…gleefully unpretentious… undoubtedly smarter and funnier than most other girls-in-the-city novels,” while Elizabeth Gilbert, author of Eat, Pray, Love said, “One should not simply read Super in the City; one should gobble it up like candy — intelligent candy.”
Copies of Super in the City will be available for purchase courtesy of Mobile Libris.
