About the Author

Books by Brian McGreevy


“I was taken most seriously when listening to men listen to themselves.”

When Leda Galvan, a gifted writer who can also occasionally be given to self-destruction, gets in to the school of her dreams and sets out to make a new life in Austin, she soon discovers that the heaviest baggage cannot always be left behind.

Funny, smart, and self-aware, The Lights is also a philosophical inquiry into the nature of how we connect in our most intimate bonds, sure to please fans of both Emma Straub and Eric Rohmer. As Leda and the men in her orbit grapple with sex, betrayal, honesty, and each other, their own closely-held ideas of who they are in matters of love and art give way to transformative decisions and the revelation of what comes next.

Desire is the star attraction at a secluded Rust Belt gentlemen’s club called Paradise, where it is rumored she possesses strange powers both on and off the stage. But the arrival of a mysterious stranger amid a series of gruesome livestock mutilations throws Desire’s life into a turmoil of secrets, dark passions, and the most dangerous magic of all: love.
