Cities & Interiors: Amina Cain, Renee Gladman and Matias Viegener
External constructions and interior depths map this evening of new writing. Bridges and secret passageways, couplings and customs, private speech and public gestures and the multiple biomythic “I,” all collude to create affective and spectral relations between place and persona.
The program celebrates the structure of city and self with readings from Matias Viegener’s recently published new book, "2500 Random Things About Me Too"; a preview of the next volume of Renee Gladman’s Ravicka series; and new stories from Amina Cain, author of "I Go to Some Hollow"—all with an awareness that the map is not the territory.
