Lynne Tillman presents Men and Apparitions
In conversation with Lucy Ives and Andrew Durbin
Award-winning, iconic author and cultural critic Lynne Tillman presents the hotly-anticipated Men and Apparitions, her first novel in 12 years. Why do human beings feel the need to create, remake, and keep images from and of everything? How are we supposed to live amid this glut of images? Men and Apparitions takes on a central question of our time through the wild musings and eventful life of Ezekiel Hooper Stark, cultural anthropologist, ethnographer, specialist in family photographs. Kaleidoscopic and encyclopedic, madcap and wry, Men and Apparitions showcases Lynne Tillman not only as a brilliantly original novelist but as one of our most prominent thinkers on visual art and culture today. Tillman presents her work with a conversation with novelists Lucy Ives (Impossible Views of the World) and Andrew Durbin (Mature Themes).
