One of The New Yorker’s 20 authors under 40, Chris Adrian writes novels that are alternately shimmering, gut-wrenching and grotesque. His latest work, The Great Night, re-envisions A Midsummer Night’s Dream as a tale of menace and gloom in modern-day San Francisco’s Buena Vista Park. In real life, Adrian moonlights as a fellow in pediatric hematology-ontology and is a graduate of Harvard Divinity School—which might explain his willingness to take on big, dark spiritual themes. Chris Adrian brings on the fairie lore on Friday, May 27, at Book Passage. 51 Tamal Vista Blvd., Corte Madera. Free. 7pm. 415.927.0960.
