Penguin Random House: Diane Johnson to Discuss Her New Novel Virtually With Joanna Rakoff

Diane Johnson, author of LORNA MOTT COMES HOME (Knopf), will discuss her new novel in conversation with Vintage author and journalist Joanna Rakoff at a Politics & Prose Live! virtual event on Saturday, July 10 at 1:00 pm (ET).

In LORNA MOTT COMES HOME, Johnson brings us into the dreamy, anxiety-filled American world of Lorna Mott Dumas, where much has changed and where she struggles to create a new life to support herself. In the midst of a large cast, the precarious balance of comedy and tragedy, happiness and anxiety, contentment and striving, generosity and greed, love and sex, Diane Johnson, our Edith Wharton of ex-pat life, comes home to America to deftly, irresistibly portray, with the lightest of touch, the way we live now.

Johnson is a bestselling author, Pulitzer Prize finalist, and two-time finalist for the National Book Award. She currently lives in Paris and San Francisco.
