One night in New York City’s Chinatown, a woman is at a work reunion dinner when she excuses herself to buy a pack of cigarettes. On her way back, she runs into a former boyfriend. And then another. And… another. What would normally pass for coincidence becomes something far stranger as our heroine, the recently engaged Lola, must contend with a great many of her relationships. Memories of the past swirl and converge in ways both comic and eerie, as Lola is forced to decide if she will surrender herself to the conspiring of one very contemporary cult. In her book, Cult Classic, Sloane Crosley spins a wry literary fantasy that is equal parts page-turner and poignant portrayal of alienation. Sip a drink and enjoy views of New York Harbor while listening to Crosley read from and discuss her fantastic book.
