How are literary classics lost and found? What great books and writers reemerge from obscurity and why?
Join us for a roundtable discussion on literary fates featuring
Joan Acocella (on Stefan Zweig’s Beware of Pity), Robyn Creswell (Season of Migration to the North by Tayeb Salih), Edwin Frank (A High Wind in Jamaica by Richard Hughes), and Jenny McPhee (Family Lexicon, by Natalia Ginzburg) in celebration of the twentieth anniversary of the NYRB Classics series. Moderated by Daniel Mendelsohn.
