Finale: A Novel of the Reagan Years

Adding to a fiction chronicle that has already spanned American history from the Lincoln assassination to the Watergate scandal, Thomas Mallon now brings to life the crusading ideologies, blunders, and glamour of the still-hotly-debated Reagan years. Several figures—including a humbled, crafty Richard Nixon; the young, brilliantly acerbic Christopher Hitchens; and an anxious, astrology-dependent Nancy Reagan, populate Finale and show readers the last convulsions of the Cold War, the beginning of the AIDS epidemic, and a political revolution. Join us this evening as Mallon shares his riveting new work with us. 

THOMAS MALLON is the author of nine novels, including Henry and Clara, Dewey Defeats Truman, Fellow Travelers, and Watergate. His latest novel, Finale, is available from Pantheon Books in September 2015. He is a frequent contributor to The New Yorker, The New York Times Book Review, and The Atlantic, and in 2011 he received the American Academy of Arts and Letters’ Harold D. Vursell Memorial Award for prose style. He has been the literary editor of GQ and the deputy chairman of the National Endowment for the Humanities. He lives in Washington, D.C.
