Brian Evenson, Thomas Glave and Samantha Hunt

An Evening of New Fiction: Brian Evenson, Thomas Glave and Samantha Hunt

"There is not a more intense, prolific, or apocalyptic writer of fiction in America than Brian Evenson." George Saunders

Three of today's most provocative and uncompromising fiction writers convene to read from their most recent work in an intimate literary evening. Brian Evenson is the author of six spellbinding books of fiction, including The Open Curtain (2006), The Wavering Knife (2004) and Altmann's Tongue (1994). He is director of the Literary Arts Program at Brown University. Award-winning author Thomas Glave, currently the Martin Luther King Jr. Visiting Professor in the Humanities at MIT, has a brand-new collection of stories out called The Torturer's Wife. His previous work includes Whose Song? and Other Stories and the anthology Our Caribbean: A Gathering of Lesbian and Gay Writing from the Antilles. The third writer is novelist, essayist and book artist Samantha Hunt, whose latest opus, The Invention of Everything Else, is based on the last days of inventor Nikola Tesla in mid-century Manhattan. Her debut novel was a fevered, reality-bending fable entitled The Seas (2004).

Organized by Maggie Nelson from CalArts' MFA Writing Program.
