Russian author, Konni Granma, makes an impact in the U.S.

Konni Granma’s debut novel The Lonely Hearts Bar lands in Los Angeles at LA Times Festival of Books. The passionate and inspired novel will be featured in the Black Chateau Enterprises/Books That Make You booth. Attendees are invited to stop by booth #956, in the Black Zone, on April 13th and 14th at the USC Campus in Los Angeles, California.


In a recent interview, a humble and gratified Konni stated, “I feel so lucky that my book is being well received in the United States, particularly in Los Angeles. The main characters are driven by the dream of life in Hollywood and it seems fitting that, in one sense, they will get there by way of the LA Times Festival of Books.”


The Lonely Hearts Bar follows the story of Connie, a college student who travels to Los Angeles in pursuit of her dream to be a Hollywood writer and director. A chance encounter at a roadside bar along the way shapes her destiny in ways she couldn’t imagine. Connie’s compelling journey leads her to unexpected friendships, romance, and mentors as she is forced to decide for herself if there is a darker side to following her dreams.


“This book was much more than I was expecting.  Every word seemed to be steeped with meaning. It’s an all encompassing story that I could not stop reading.”  –  Reader Review
