Daniel Clowes’ beloved comics and graphic novels have reached millions of fans right where they live, and beyond: from the stultifying suburban sprawl of Ghost World to the bleak-yet-uplifiting Mister Wonderful, he’s delved into the lives of strivers and cynics, turning up their darkest thoughts and their most generous impulses, often in the same panel. He returns to the page with Patience, a gorgeous trip into sci-fi psychedelia, unlike anything he’s done before, yet simultaneously and unmistakably “Clowesian.”

Join Daniel Clowes in conversation with Nicole Rudick, managing editor of the Paris Review, for a celebration of the release of Patience.

Tickets available here.

The Spring Revel brings together Paris Review readers, supporters, and writers for an unforgettable evening of cocktails, dinner, conversation, and revelry. Proceeds from the Revel go directly toward The Paris Review Foundation, a non-profit organization established to ensure the future of The Paris Review. We also pay tribute to writers at different stages of their careers with the Hadada Award, The Plimpton Prize for Fiction, and The Terry Southern Prize for Humor.

This year we’re honoring Lydia Davis with the Hadada, our lifetime achievement award. Davis’s history with the Review begins in 1983, when we published her story “Break It Down” and continues into the current issue, which features a new story by Davis as well as two of her translations. New Yorker critic James Wood has written that The Collected Stories of Lydia Davis is “one of the great, strange American literary contributions.” She is the author of one novel, The End of the Story, and six story collections. Her translations from the French include new versions of Swann’s Way and Madame Bovary.

If you can’t join us on April 5, please make a contribution, and your gift will help us realize our plans for 2016. Your support has never been more appreciated.

Tickets available here.

In this latest installment, poet Nathaniel Mackey—winner of this year's Bollingen Prize—will read from his work and sit for a conversation with Cathy Park Hong. "His poetry ambitiously continues an American bardic line that unfolds from Leaves of Grass to Pound’s Cantos to H.D.’s Trilogy to Olson’s The Maximus Poems, winds through the whole of Robert Duncan’s work and extends beyond all of these,” wrote Don Share. “Mackey’s own rare combinations create an astonishing and resounding effect: his words go where music goes.
