Jill Alexander Essbaum's new novel, Hausfrau, is one of the most anticipated novels of 2015; an engrossing story of marriage, fidelity, sex, morality, and how we discover ourselves. The novel follows Anna, a housewife in her late-thirties living in Switzerland, whose comfortable life masks an internal desperation that sends her in search of new experiences - language classes, psychotherapy, and extramarital affairs. Anna and her decisions will stay with you long after you've turned the last page. We're so glad to have Essbaum in the store tonight to share this story. 


Jill Alexander Essbaum is the author of several collections of poetry and her work has appeared in The Best American Poetry, as well as its sister anthology, The Best American Erotic Poems, 1800-Present. She is the winner of the Bakeless Poetry Prize and recipient of two NEA literature fellowships. A member of the core faculty at the University of California, Riverside’s Palm Desert Low-Residency MFA program, she lives and writes in Austin, Texas.
