RYE, N.Y. Meet new author and Rye resident Douglas Brunt to celebrate the publication of his debut novel, "Ghosts of Manhattan," at the Rye Free Reading Room on Friday, Oct. 5, at 7 p.m.
Brunt, the former CEO of an Internet security company, presents a wryly comic first-person story about his life in the seedy underbelly of the finance world on Wall Street leading up to the 2008 banking crisis."
Publishers Weekly says of the book: Brunt offers up a savage, jaded, and comical depiction of freewheeling Wall Street bond traders during their pre-collapse heyday in this engaging debut. ... As Nicks life, his marriage, and the U.S. economy edge closer to meltdown, Brunt brings all the pieces together for a satisfying climax to this compulsively readable novel.
Brunt is married to Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly. They live in Rye with their two young children.
Books will be available for purchase and signing at the event, and refreshments will be served. For more information, call 914-231-3161 or visit www.ryelibrary.org . The Rye Free Reading Room is located at 1061 Boston Post Road.
