Leading Men by Christopher Castellani (February 12)

This book’s plot reads like literary catnip, starring Tennessee Williams, his lover Frank Merlo, and Truman Capote alongside a fictional beautiful Swedish actress named Anja Bloom. Christopher Castellani, a faculty member at the Bread Loaf Writers’ Conference and the artistic director of Grub Street in Boston, received a Guggenheim Fellowship to work on Leading Men. 


“I read Christopher Castellani’s Leading Men in one quiet, sunny, rapt afternoon, and spent hours afterwards just stunned from having been immersed in such a tender, psychologically devastating, and gorgeously precise novel,” praises famed author Lauren Groff.
