MATTHEW WEINER in Conversation with Michael Krasny
"Heather, The Totality"
Tues. Nov. 14, 7:30pm

(SAN RAFAEL, Calif) Writer, creator, executive producer, and director of Mad Men, discusses his life, career and most resent endeavor, HEATHER, THE TOTALITY, (a short and daring novel) with KQED Forum's host Michael Krasny at the Osher Marin JCC on Tuesday, November 14 @ 7:30pm.

Matthew Weiner has been entertaining audiences for two decades, most recently as writer, creator, executive producer, and director of Mad Men, one of television's most honored series. He also worked as a writer and executive producer on The Sopranos, along with several comedy series, and made his feature film debut in 2014.

Tonight Matthew joins KQED Forum host Michael Krasny to discuss his life, career and most resent endeavor HEATHER, THE TOTALITY, a short, daring novel that demonstrates perfectly Weiner's forensic eye for the human qualities that hold modern society together, and pull it apart.
Conversation followed by audience Q & A, book sales and signing.

This event is presented in Association with Book Passage

"Heather, The Totality is a tour de force of control, tone and razor-slash insight. In its clear-eyed anatomist's gaze and its remarkable combination of empathy and pitilessness. I hear echoes of Flaubert and Richard Yates, with a deeply twisted twist of Muriel Spark at her darkest. I could not put it down."—Michael Chabon, author of Moonglow

"This short novel of upper-crust anomie and class-divide obsession is a scorcher! It's the classic noir construction: the short walk off the long ledge and the plummet to an indifferent Hell. Matthew Weiner demonically delivers the goods! Read this book in one gasping breath."—James Ellroy
