Amy Hoffman, The Off Season

Join author Amy Hoffman as she reads from and discusses her new novel, The Off Season.

The Off Season is a comic romp in Provincetown that contends with heartbreaking, aging and environmental worries, starring characters like the motor scooter–driving landlady Miss Ruby, Reverend Patsy, the vegan minister of the Unitarian church, and Nora, an artist in her mid thirties, who moves from Brooklyn to Provincetown for a quiet off-season on the tip of Cape Cod.

Stephen McCauley, author of The Object of My Affection, writes that “with one of the most effortlessly charming voices you’re likely to come across, Hoffman’s real triumph is reminding us of the importance of community in the face of hostility and oppression. It’s hard to imagine a more timely or necessary reminder.”
