Louisa Hall will read from and discuss her new novel, Trinity, at the Country Bookshelf on Tuesday, November 13 at 6:00 PM. Hall is the Western Writer-in-Residence at in the English Department at Montana State University.
In a set of narratives by seven fictional characters, crossing time and space, Trinityexplores the life of Robert Oppenheimer, the father of the atomic bomb. Trinitypresents a complicated and elliptical biographical portrait of a contradictory character, who defended his Communist friends but later betrayed them, who became a spokesperson against the weapons he helped create, who lied about his love affairs. Blending science with literature and fiction with biography, Trinity asks searing questions about what it means to truly know someone, and about the secrets we keep from the world and from ourselves.
