“Phoebe never hated her husband more than when she visited him in prison.”
Join us on WEDNESDAY APRIL 19 at 6:30 as AUTHOR’S NIGHT welcomes back bestselling author RANDY SUSAN MEYERS to present her just-released, provocative new novel titled “THE WIDOW OF WALL STREET.”
It’s about the seemingly blind love of a wife for her husband as he conquers Wall Street, and her extraordinary, perhaps foolish, loyalty during his precipitous fall. From penthouse to prison, with tragic consequences rippling well beyond Wall Street, Randy Susan Meyers’s latest novel exposes a woman struggling to survive and then redefine her life as her world crumbles
“I dare you not to read Randy Susan Meyers’ THE WIDOW OF WALL STREET in one big gulp. What is it like to be married to a disgraced wolf of Wall Street, and how do you survive the aftermath of a scandal? Meyers answers the question with a fascinating page turner that somehow manages both to indict and absolve.” –
Melanie Benjamin, New York Times Bestselling author of THE SWANS OF FIFTH AVENUE

ABOUT the AUTHOR
The drama of Randy Susan Meyers’ novels is informed by her work with criminal offenders and families impacted by emotional and physical violence, her years spent bartending, and far too many years enamored with bad boys.
The Murderer’s Daughters and Accidents of Marriage were finalists for the Mass Book Awards (2010 & 2015) and included as a “Must Read Book” by the Massachusetts Council of the Book, which declared, “The clear and distinctive voice of Randy Susan Meyers will have you enraptured and wanting more.”
The Boston Globe called Meyers’ second novel, The Comfort of Lies “Sharp and biting, and sometimes wickedly funny when the author skewers Boston’s class and neighborhood dividing lines, but it has a lot of heart, too.”
Choosing Accidents of Marriage as a People “Pick of The Week,” the magazine wrote, “This novel’s unsparing look at emotional abuse and its devastating consequences gives it gravity and bite, while a glimpse into a physically damaged mind both surprises and fascinates.”
From Randy Susan Meyers:
‘When a scandal unfolds, I always wonder two things: What was the self-told story the perpetrator believed that allowed him to hurt so many people? And what does it do to his family?
When Bernie Madoff’s crimes came to light, I wondered what it would be like to be his wife and wake up one day to find that your entire life was built on air. When Governor Elliot Spitzer was discovered transferring money to a prostitution ring, I could only imagine the pain for his family. Every crime has multiple victims—including the family of the perpetrator.
Writing The Widow of Wall Street allowed me to explore both questions, by inhabiting the points of view of Phoebe Pierce and her husband, Jake.’
