READ DENIS JOHNSON’S POSTHUMOUS COLLECTION “THE LARGESSE OF THE SEAMAIDEN” WITH BOOK CRITIC AND AUTHOR DAVID ULIN FOR 3 SESSIONS MAR 1, 15 AND 22 AT 10:00

 David will be doing a 3-session series devoted to the five remarkable stories (along with one scholarly essay by mr. Ulin himself) contained in the great Denis Johnson’s posthumous collection “The Largesse of the SeaMaiden.”  

Johnson finished this collection — his first in 25 years — just before he died of liver cancer last year.  Like his masterpiece “Jesus’ Son,” many stories of which we have read together, these  stories are lyrical, dark, funny and full of gorgeous language.  He explores themes of mortality and redemption — “the last words from one of the world’s greatest writers.”

The series dates are March 1, 15, 22.
