St. Martin’s Press and the Vermont College of Fine Arts will host the book release party for The Headmaster’s Wife by Thomas Christopher Greene on Monday, March 3rd at 6:30 PM at Bowery Poetry. An immensely talented writer whose work has been described as “incandescent” (Kirkus) and “poetic” (Booklist), Thomas Christopher Greene pens a haunting and deeply affecting portrait of one couple at their best and worst. Inspired by a personal loss, The Headmaster's Wife stands as a moving elegy to the power of love as an antidote to grief.

"A truly remarkable novel, I read the second half of The Headmaster’s Wife with my mouth open, my jaw having dropped at the end of the first half. Thomas Christopher Greene knows how to hook a reader and land him." --Richard Russo, Pulitzer Prize winning author of Empire Falls

“Greene’s genre-bending novel of madness and despair evokes both the predatory lasciviousness of Nabokov’s classic, Lolita, and the anxious ambiguity of Gillian Flynn’s contemporary thriller, Gone Girl (2012).” Book List January 8, 2014
