Randy Susan Meyers, known for her novels of domestic drama, will present her latest work, The Widow of Wall Street, on Tuesday, September 25, at 6:30 PM. Meyers, who called her latest book a roman à clef, a form of fiction she enjoys reading herself, delves into the role of Ruth Madoff, wife to Bernie, of the infamous Ponzi scheme. The author won the 2015 Must Read Fiction Massachusetts Book Award for Accidents of Marriage. The Boston Globe called Accidents of Marriage, which explores emotional abuse in a family living in a Jamaica Plain Victorian, a 'complex, captivating tale.' She previously published The Comfort of Lies and The Murderer's Daughters, as well as an author's guide called What To Do Before Your Book Launch. In a 2010 article published in the U.K., Meyers disclosed her own father tried to kill her mother when she was four, and described how domestic violence affected her family for decades after.
