Fame and the Writer

The public image of today’s international literary stars is more often defined by the Internet and worldwide book tours than by what they write. Many successful authors feel that their celebrity has little to do with their work, and even less with themselves and their personal lives. In this conversation, three successful European writers engage in a conversation about the alienating effects of seeing one’s life reflected in the public eye. Free and open to the public. RSVP required: deutscheshaus.rsvp@nyu.edu. Space is limited; please arrive ten minutes prior to the event.
