Some Favorite Writers: Justin Torres
Los Angeles , CA 90024 United States + Google Map
Justin Torres’ latest book Blackouts received the 2023 National Book Award for fiction and was called a “shimmering, fable-like novel” by The Washington Post. Filled with tales-within-tales, redacted pages, illustrations and photographs, Torres excavates the devastating history of the 1941 report Sex Variants: A Study of Homosexual Patterns, imaginatively exposing stories that had previously been erased.
Readings are followed by a discussion with the author and UCLA professor Mona Simpson, who organizes this series. Co-presented by UCLA Department of English.
Limited books will be available for purchase.
