Mike Scalise in conversation with Laura van den Berg - The Brand New Catastrophe

The Brand New Catastrophe

When a ruptured tumor leaves Mike Scalise with a hormone disorder at age 24, he must navigate an alien world of illness. His mother, with her heart condition and dramatic flair, serves as a complicated model. A moving, funny exploration of defining ourselves by the stories we choose to tell.

Mike Scalise will appear in conversation with novelist Laura van den Berg (Find Me).
