Tatjana Soli
’s debut novel The Lotus Eaters takes place during the Vietnam War and captures the tale of three photographers, one of whom is intriguingly “addicted to the narcotics of violence.” Called haunting, ambitious lyrical and . . . well, just fill in the blanks with the standard words that get attributed to really excellent first books, Soli’s writing is gaining much deserved notice in the literary world, including a nomination for an Los Angeles Times Book Award. And yes, the title is an allusion to those island-dwellers in The Odyssey who get all caught up and dreamy eating the magic fruit. Tatjana Soli discusses The Lotus Eaters on Tuesday, March 29, at Book Passage. 51 Tamal Vista Blvd., Corte Madera. 7pm. Free. 415. 927.0960.
