Ethan Canin - A Doubter's Almanac

Saturday, February 20, 2016 - 6:00pm to 7:00pm

Canin is an award-winning writer who earned a medical degree—in case the fiction didn’t pan out. Now the author of seven works of fiction, including the story collection, Emperor of the Air, and the novels America America and For Kings and Planets, as well as a writing teacher at Iowa, Canin focuses his latest novel on Milo Andret, an unassuming young mathematical genius. Milo can construct dazzlingly intricate formulas in his mind, but fails at even the most basic relationships. Alienated and depressed, despite his phenomenal career, Milo eventually bottoms out—but bequeaths the dual legacy of genius and embitterment to his son.

Canin will be in conversation with Ron Charles, fiction editor of The Washington Post.
