Elizabeth Hand signing Generation Loss and Available Dark
ELIZABETH HAND will be reading from and signing books one and two of the CASS NEARY series, GENERATION LOSS and AVAILABLE DARK (Constable & Robinson) at the Forbidden Planet London Megastore on Thursday 26th September from 6 – 7pm.
In GENERATION LOSS, we meet Cass Neary, who made her name in the seventies as an NYC photographer, capturing images of the lust and ferocity of the exploding punk scene. Thirty years later, an old acquaintance sends her on a mercy gig to interview a famously reclusive photographer who lives on an island in Maine. When she arrives, Cass stumbles across a decades-old mystery that is still claiming victims, and she finds one final shot at redemption
In AVAILABLE DARK, Cass accepts a job offer from overseas and hops on a plane. In Helsinki, she authenticates a series of disturbing but stunning images taken by a famous fashion photographer who has cut himself off from the violent Nordic music scene where he first made his reputation. Paid off by her shady employer, she buys a one-way ticket to Reykjavik, in search of a lover from her own dark past.
Elizabeth Hand has written eight novels and several short-story collections and is a winner of multiple awards. She’s a longtime contributor to numerous publications, including the Washington Post Book World and the Village Voice Literary Supplement. She divides her time between the coast of Maine and North London.
