Book Launch: Katharine Duckett presents Miranda in Milan
Katharine Duckett joins us at Greenlight to celebrate the launch of her debut novella, Miranda in Milan. The book reimagines the consequences of Shakespeare’s The Tempest, casting Miranda into a Milanese pit of vipers and building a queer love story that lifts off the page in whirlwinds of feeling. After the tempest, after the reunion, after her father drowned his books, Miranda was meant to enter a brave new world. Instead she finds herself in Milan, in her father’s castle, surrounded by hostile servants who treat her like a ghost. With only Dorothea, her sole companion and confidant to aid her, Miranda must cut through the mystery and find the truth about her father, her mother, and herself. Author Cherie Priest praises Miranda in Milan as “a pleasure for any lover of romance, myth, and magic—whether or not they’re fans of the Bard.” The event includes a reading from the book and an audience Q&A.
