Julia Phillips signs and discusses “Disappearing Earth”

Left Bank Books welcomes Fulbright fellow Julia Phillips, who will sign and discuss her debut novel, “Disappearing Earth”!

This event is free and open to the signing line, but proof of purchase of “Disappearing Earth” from Left Bank Books will be required to enter the signing line.

One August afternoon, on the shoreline of the Kamchatka peninsula at the northeastern edge of Russia, two girls—sisters, eight and eleven—go missing. In the ensuing weeks, then months, the police investigation turns up nothing. Echoes of the disappearance reverberate across a tightly woven community, with the fear and loss felt most deeply among its women. Taking us through a year in Kamchatka, “Disappearing Earth” enters with astonishing emotional acuity the worlds of a cast of richly drawn characters, all connected by the crime: a witness, a neighbor, a detective, a mother.
