The Poetry Center teams up with The Paris Review to present readings by Chris Bachelder and Rachel Cusk, whose new novels were recently serialized in the Review.

Chris Bachelder’s The Throwback Special is a startlingly original comic novel filled with pitch-perfect observations about marriage, parenthood, aging and ritual. “We need novelists like Chris Bachelder who can, with a microfine sense of humor and a tragic sense of history, almost make it all make sense,” wrote Michael Chabon.

A sequel to Outline, Rachel Cusk’s new novel, Transit, is a stunning reflection on the upheaval that follows a family’s collapse. Her writing is “a subtle and utterly engrossing exploration of the ways we make ourselves known to one another, its acute insights gracefully pulling apart the seams of its carefully composed characters to show glimpses of much messier selves within,” wrote Leslie Jamison.
