Cheston Knapp - Up Up, Down Down: Essays — in conversation with Timothy Denevi

Upcoming Event
Saturday, February 24, 2018 - 3:30pm to 4:30pm

Just as linked stories have become a supple narrative mode for fiction writers, nonfiction writers are turning to linked essays to make larger connections among disparate subjects. In his first collection, Knapp, managing editor of Tin House, presents seven essays that take seven different approaches to the idea of identity. Focusing on topics including a wrestling promotion, UFO enthusiasts, skateboarding, a frat house, and a murder, Knapp turns his astute, funny, and highly articulate  cultural critiques into deeper meditations on the nature of kindness and consciousness, literary influence, familial relationships, and what we become when we become ourselves. Knapp will be in conversation with Timothy Denevi, author of Hyper.
