In her tour-de-force first novel, Too Bright To Hear Too Loud to See,& Juliann Garey takes us inside the restless mind, ravaged heart, and anguished soul of Greyson Todd, a successful Hollywood studio executive who leaves his wife and young daughter and for a decade travels the world giving free reign to the bipolar disorder he's been forced to keep hidden for almost 20 years. The novel intricately weaves together three timelines: the story of Greyson's travels (Rome, Israel, Santiago, Thailand, Uganda); the progressive unraveling of his own father seen through Greyson's eyes as a child; and the intimacies and estrangements of his marriage. Daniel Mason, author of The Piano Tuner has written, "A racing, vertiginous read, harrowing and heart-breaking and humorous at once". A reception will precede the event and a book selling and signing will follow the event.
