Cynan Jones & John Freeman

Wednesday, May 6, 7:30 PM
Cynan Jones presents The Dig
In conversation with John Freeman

Welsh author Cynan Jones makes his US debut with The Dig, a short, searing novella which unfolds in a stark rural setting where man, animal, and land are at loggerheads. Built of the interlocking fates of a badger-baiter and a farmer struggling through lambing season, the book is no bucolic pastoral, but pared-down rural realism, crackling with compressed energy. Jones talks with his friend, renowned book critic and editor John Freeman, former editor of Granta and executive editor of the soon-to-launch site Literary Hub.
