Nuar Alsadir presents Animal Joy
In conversation with Orna Guralnik
Greenlight is delighted and proud to help celebrate poet and psychoanalyst Nuar Alsadir's brilliant prose debut, Animal Joy. Writing in a poetic, associative style, Alsadir blends the personal—her experience in clown school, Freud’s un-Freudian behaviors, her relationship with her daughters—with the theoretical, seeking to recover the sensation of being present and embodied. An invigorating, continuously surprising book about the serious nature of laughter, Animal Joy is an ode to spontaneity and feeling alive. Join us in Fort Greene to celebrate this "vulnerable, lyrical, and refreshingly incisive" (Kirkus Reviews) book with a reading, conversation, and audience Q&A.
