Paul Lisicky - The Narrow Door: A Memoir of Friendship

Saturday, January 16, 2016 - 6:00pm to 7:00pm

Lisicky is a novelist, essayist, editor of StoryQuarterly, and a teacher in the MFA program at Rutgers University-Camden. Picking up from the shorter reminiscences of Famous Builder, Lisicky’s fifth book explores two very different and deeply meaningful relationships. Charting the end of his marriage, a friend’s cancer diagnosis, and his own sharp response to the larger wounds of Haiti’s earthquake, the Gulf oil spill, and other natural and man-made disasters, Lisicky’s memoir is a moving account of what holds a life together, tears it apart, and allows it to heal again.

Lisicky will be in conversation with Richard McCann, President of the PEN/Faulkner Foundation, American University MFA writing teacher and the author of Mother of Sorrows and Ghost Letters.
