Description

Two of America’s most innovative literary stylists read from their new novels set in post-9/11 New York City—D’Erasmo’s The Sky Below and Lethem’s Chronic City.

Stacey D’Erasmo is the author of the novels Tea, which was a New York Times Notable Book of the Year; A Seahorse Year, which was named a Best Book of the Year by the San Francisco Chronicle and Newsday, and won both a Lambda Literary Award and a Ferro-Grumley Award; and The Sky Below. Her essays, features, and reviews have appeared in numerous publications. She is an assistant professor of writing at Columbia University. In the spring of 2010, she will be in residence at the American Academy in Rome as the 2010/11 Sovern/Columbia Affiliated Fellow.

Jonathan Lethem writes in a wide expanse of styles and subjects, ranging from Brooklyn to Bob Dylan. A recipient of the MacArthur Fellowship, Lethem is the author of seven novels and has published his stories and essays in The New Yorker, Harper’s, Rolling Stone, Esquire, and The New York Times.
