Cynthia D'Aprix Sweeney

Tuesday, April 11, 7:30 p.m.

The Nest is Cynthia D'Aprix Sweeney’s debut novel that garnered a seven-figure advance and spent more than 12 weeks on the New York Times bestseller list. It dissects the juicy dynamics of the Plumb family, composed of four adult siblings and a distant mother who holds the purse strings to their inheritance. When the oldest sibling, Leo, maims a teenage girl in a drunk-driving crash, the mother uses money from “The Nest” to pay for the girl’s medical needs and to keep her quiet. Resentment mounts as each sibling crafts his or her way to get Leo to repay the money he owes them. Sweeney is currently writing the screenplay for the film adaptation.
