Writers’ Workshop alum Nick Dybek will read from his novel of a lonely young man, a beautiful widow, and an amnesiac soldier, in The Verdun Affair. Set in Europe in the aftermath of World War I and Los Angeles in the 1950s, “From a still-smoldering battlefield, Nick Dybek conjures a sweeping saga of secrets, lies, mistaken identity, love and betrayal. This is the kind of book you can’t put down.” —Claire Vaye Watkins

Nick Dybek is also the author of When Captain Flint Was Still a Good Man. A recipient of a Granta New Voices selection, a Michener-Copernicus Society of America Award, and a Maytag Fellowship, he currently teaches at Oregon State University.
