Fragmentation, alienation, mental anguish, and collapse—how are the private woes of modern life expressed in the works of contemporary writers? Join us for a literary therapy session of sorts with South Korean author Young-Ha Kim, whose novel I Have the Right to Destroy Myself epitomized the anomie of ’90s-era Seoul; acclaimed Austrian poet and essayist Evelyn Schlag, who’s been called “one of the most distinctive and subtle voices in contemporary German-language writing”; Dutch novelist Ana Sicking, author of The Silent Sin, a tale of music, obsession, and desire; and Greek author Amanda Michalopoulou, whose book of stories I’d Like seeks salvation in the act of writing. Moderated by Victoria Redel, author of The Border of Truth and Where the Road Bottoms Out, among other works.
