Larissa Pham presents Pop Song: Adventures in Art and Intimacy
In conversation with Alexandra Kleeman
Greenlight is thrilled to host Brooklyn artist and writer Larissa Pham for her debut work of nonfiction, Pop Song! Endlessly inventive, intimate, and provocative, this memoir-in-essays is a celebration of the strange and exquisite state of falling in love, whether with a painting or a person, interweaving Pham’s incisive commentary on modern life, feminism, art, and sex with her own experiences of obsession and heartbreak. Plumbing the well of culture for clues and patterns about love and loss, Pham writes of her youthful attempts to find meaning in travel, sex, drugs, and art before sensing that she might need to turn her gaze upon herself. Pop Song is a book about all the routes by which we might escape our own needs before finally finding a way home. Alexandra Kleeman, author of Intimations, You Too Can Have a Body Like Mine, and the forthcoming Something New Under the Sun, joins Pham in conversation at this electrifying virtual book talk!
