"The Middlesteins" writer Attenberg's new novel centers on Mazie Phillips, who is the owner of New York movie theater The Venice throughout the Great Depression noted for her kindness to the indigent who she often sheltered in her theater. Attenberg imagines a documentarian finding Mazie's diary decades after her death and making surprising discoveries about who Mazie really was. "A wonderful book," says Nelson.
