Lauren Acampora Reading: Paper Wasp

August 3, 2019 @ EST 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm


Lauren Acampora’s acclaimed short story collection The Wonder Garden earned her comparisons to Wharton, Cheever and O’Connor. Now she delivers her electrifying debut novel The Paper Wasp, which tells the knife-edge story of two women’s dark friendship of twisted ambition set against the backdrop of contemporary Hollywood.


“A lyrical, provocative, imaginative page turner that makes the world feel new again, The Paper Waspis both a stunning portrait of a fixated woman and an addictive, modern commentary on an eternal theme of obsession. In her glittering, goosebump-inducing prose, Lauren Acampora gives us a soul trip/head trip/rarefied LA trip replete with surrealism and social commentary.”

—Caroline Kepnes, author of You


Lauren Acampora’s fiction has appeared in the Paris ReviewMissouri ReviewPrairie SchoonerNew England Review, and Antioch Review. Raised in Connecticut, she now lives in Westchester County, New York, with her husband, artist Thomas Doyle, and their daughter.
