Elena Passarello presents Animals Strike Curious Poses
In conversation with Rachel Syme
Whiting Award-winning author Elena Passarello, author previously of Let Me Clear My Throat, has been called “one of the best, most important, and most exciting essayists of the 21st century” (Matthew Gavin Frank) and “one our country’s most gifted young prose writers” (Héctor Tobar). Her new book Animals Strike Curious Poses is modeled loosely after a medieval bestiary, with sixteen essays each investigating a different famous animal named and immortalized by humans, traversing history, myth, science, and more. Passarello discusses her work with critic and essayist Rachel Syme.
