Darkness lurks behind the high hedges and bright lawns of the Darling family, a family whose elegant Hamptons estate has been purchased with lies. Cristina Alger draws on her extensive personal experience in finance and the law to focus in on the blurry intersection of both worlds.
Alger spoke about her best-selling novel The Darlings (Pamela Dorman Books) to an enthusiastic audience at BookHampton in East Hampton on July 14th. Her new career as a writer is off to a promising start, having captivated an audience with her portrait of a familiar sort of family that is not what it seems. Readers asked questions that revolved around her creative process, her early life, and the future of the Darling story: rumor has it that a television series is in the works.
