As part of DMA Arts & Letters Live, Xochitl Gonzalez will be in conversation with Claudia Vega of Whose Books.

New York Times bestselling author Xochitl Gonzalez delivers Anita de Monte Laughs Last, a novel about a first-generation Ivy League student who uncovers the genius work of a female artist decades after her suspicious death. Moving back and forth through time and told from the perspectives of both women, the novel is a propulsive, witty examination of power, love, and art, daring to ask who gets to be remembered and who is left behind in the rarefied world of the elite.

Gonzalez is a cultural critic, producer, screenwriter, and the author of Olga Dies Dreaming. Named a Best Book of 2022 by the New York Times, Time, and the Washington Post, among others, Olga Dies Dreaming was the winner of the Brooklyn Public Library Book Prize in Fiction and the New York City Book Awards. Gonzalez’s writing at the Atlantic was recognized as a 2023 finalist for the Pulitzer Prize in Commentary.
