Scott Nadelson in Conversation With Justin Taylor

This event is in the past
Tue, Mar 21, 7 pm
Powell's City of Books Pearl District (Portland)
This is an in-person event

The following description is from the event organizer.

Scott Nadelson’s award-winning short story collection, While It Lasts (University of Georgia Press), brings us moments of tenuousness, in which characters seek out or struggle to hold on to what’s most precious in the face of change and loss. The stories take us from suburban New Jersey to prewar Vienna to Western Oregon, chronicling the lives of, among others, a suburban teenage boy taking revenge with a stolen Revolutionary War bayonet; a woman adrift, literally and figuratively, amid a workplace affair; a nearly forgotten and destitute musician attempting to reclaim his creative spark; and a young Mark Rothko finding his way after several early failures. While It Lasts speaks to how we are all bound by limited time to achieve what we must despite our own knowledge of how everything is fleeting. Nadelson will be joined in conversation by Justin Taylor, author of Riding with the Ghost.
