Kosmopolis 15. The Speed of Fiction

Dialogue with Rachel Kushner and Eduardo Lago

The multitude of voices and trends coexisting in today’s US narrative make that country’s literature one of the most active laboratories for the novel’s immediate future. In this extraordinarily vital field, the work of Rachel Kushner is part of a trend that incorporates elements from a wide range of areas, principally the visual arts, philosophy and political commitment, to produce a form of writing that invests in the power of pure fiction. Kushner will be talking about the state of US literature today with Eduardo Lago, a Spanish novelist who, during three decades of life in New York, has had occasion to interview in depth the leading authors of US narrative of our times.

Participants: Eduardo Lago, Rachel Kushner
