Colum McCann returns to the world of short fiction after phenomenal success with his novels — indeed, Let The Great World Spin won the 2009 National Book Award. His newest work, Thirteen Ways of Looking, is a novella accompanied by three short stories. This deeply evocative and poetical collection allows us to take an intimate look at the lives of an array of characters who must face the hardships of chance and consequence.
McCann’s mastery runs throughout the individual stories, securing him as one of the most important authors to watch. Please join us for a thrilling and fascinating evening with him.
