Lucas Hirsch leest gastauteur: Explainers (Paul La Farge)

Lucas Hirsch leest: vandaag is auteur Paul La Farge te gast en leest het korte verhaal 'Explainers'. Paul La Farge is the author of four novels: The Artist of the Missing (FSG, 1999), Haussmann, or the Distinction (FSG, 2001), and Luminous Airplanes (FSG, 2011), The Night Ocean (The Penguin Press, 2017); and a book of imaginary dreams, The Facts of Winter (McSweeney's Books, 2005). He is the grateful recipient of a Guggenheim Fellowship, the Bard Fiction Prize, and fellowships from the New York Foundation for the Arts and the National Endowment for the Arts. He was a fellow at the Dorothy and Lewis B. Cullman Center for Scholars and Writers at the New York Public Library in 2013-14. He lives in a subterranean ‘annex’ in upstate New York, where he is almost certainly up to no good.
