Live Via Zoom
In partnership with Greenlight Bookstore
Rachel Kushner presents The Hard Crowd: Essays 2000-2020
In conversation with Hari Kunzru
Greenlight is thrilled to host National Book Award, National Book Critics Circle Award, and Man Booker finalist Rachel Kushner for her new collection of nonfiction, The Hard Crowd. This career-spanning collection features brilliant and iconoclastic essays that address the most pressing political, artistic, and cultural issues of our times—and illuminate the themes and real-life terrain that underpin Kushner's fiction. The Hard Crowd spans literary journalism, memoir, cultural criticism, and writing about art and literature in nineteen razor-sharp essays. These pieces, new and old, are electric, phosphorescently vivid, and wry, and they provide an opportunity to witness the evolution and range of one of our most dazzling and fearless writers. Hari Kunzru, author of Red Pill and White Tears, joins Kushner in conversation at this virtual talk for her highly anticipated book!
