A Celebration of Gerald Murnane
April 26, 2018, 7:00 PM
With Mark Binelli, Joshua Cohen, Patty Yumi Cottrell, Jeremy Davies, and Gabe Habash
In April, Farrar, Strauss and Giroux will publish two books by Gerald Murnane, “a genius on the level of Beckett” (Teju Cole). Border Districts, purportedly the last work of fiction by Murnane, will be published alongside Stream System: The Collected Short Fiction of Gerald Murnane. Jeremy Davies, his editor, will be joined by Mark Binelli, Joshua Cohen, Patty Yumi Cottrell, and Gabe Habash to read favorite passages from Murnane’s work and to contextualize this titan of Australian literature.
