The Center for Ideas and Society presents a book talk with Stu Krieger, Professor of Theatre, Film & Digital Production.

That One Cigarette is a counterfactual history novel following four families from 1963 to 2009. In November ’63, Ed Callahan is an assistant manager at the Texas School Book Depository in Dallas. His promise to his wife to quit smoking as soon as he finishes the pack in his pocket ends up changing the course of events on November 22. The fallout of this action alters the lives of the Scott family in Rochester, New York, the Kaufman/Goldman family in Los Angeles and the extended Kashat family in Baghdad, Iraq. That One Cigarette delves into questions of fate, love, loyalty and validates the ability of each of us to make defining contributions to our world by simply being present in our own lives.
