Quim Monzó in Conversation with Robert Coover

 

April 30, 2010 | Deutsches haus at NYU | New York City

With Quim Monzó and Robert Coover; moderated by Mary Ann Newman

Co-sponsored by Deutsches Haus at NYU 

Catalan writer Quim Monzó draws on the rich tradition of surrealism to put a deliberately paranoid sense of menace in the mundane. He has translated Arthur Miller, J.D. Salinger, Dorothy Parker, Ray Bradbury, and the works of Robert Coover, who joins him today. Sit in on this special discussion about Monzó’s new book, Gasoline, and the things these two acclaimed writers share—their lyrical, visionary imaginations, and fantastic senses of the absurd.
