…AFTERWORDS are uncommon books which blend personal essay and literary criticism. In the tradition of Rebecca Mead on Middlemarch, and Geoff Dyer on D.H. Lawrence, each volume features an acclaimed writer interrogating a book they adore, to create a distinctive new work of art. Join us for an invigorating discussion with authors Stephanie Reents (on Blood Meridian), Irena Yamboliev (on Middlesex), Adam Colman (on 10:04), and Alden Jones (on Wild).
