Join Jason Allen, in conversation with Boston resident, James Charlesworth discussing his debut novel The East End.

The fallout from a deadly accident shadows a Memorial Day weekend celebration and upends three lives in a masterful debut novel set in the Hamptons.

Foregrounding pervasive anxieties over the ever-widening chasm between rich and poor in this country, THE EAST END can transports readers to a spot where monied elites and working-class locals coexist uneasily—and occasionally, forge connections that bridge the divide
