On Sunday March 25th at 2pm the wonderful actor Michael Tucker will join us at BookHampton to celebrate the publication of his new novel, After Annie (Overlook Press).
Known and beloved to literally millions as a film and television actor (his role on LA Law brought him many Emmy and Golden Globe nominations) Michael Tucker is also an exceptional writer. Most enchanting perhaps is his earlier book, Living in a Foreign Language, which chronicled his life with his wife, actress Jill Eikenberry, in the Italian countryside.
A committed New Yorker and consummate Westsider, Tucker can often be seen walking up Amsterdam or down Columbus. After Annie has an urban edge. This is not an introspective weeper; rather it is the honest rant of a man whose lover has been taken from him and who discovers that his only choice is to pick up and start again. It's not easy. The writing has a bite. The story has an edge. We want the central character, a guy named Herbie, to rally and win. What's he winning? He gets to continue living.
Sunday afternoon events at BookHampton are always very special. This Sunday we will be delighted to listen in as Michael Tucker is interviewed by ABC's Lynn Sherr. They'll be discussing After Annie, women, books, politics, and life as we all go forward together. You'll want to be there!
