Elizabeth McCracken in Conversation with Matthew Klam

From the moment Bertha Truitt materializes in a Salford, Massachusetts, cemetery to the time she dies in a freak accident, she’s the town’s most charming—and enigmatic—character. She mystifies the community with her unexplained stash of gold and her decision to marry the doctor who found her, but keeps everyone entertained with her popular candlepin bowling alley. After she dies, her story continues with an unexpected chapter when a long-lost son shows up. Written with McCracken’s signature wit and compassion, this novel by the award-winning author of Thunderstruck & Other Stories and The Giant’s House is an insightful and endearing picture of small-town America over the course of several generations. McCracken will be in conversation with Matthew Klam, author of Who is Rich?
