To celebrate The Paris Review’s latest anthology, Writers at Work around the World, the magazine is saluting its international origins with a conversation in English at the Albertine Bookstore (972 Fifth Avenue). Join us for the launch on Thursday, June 6, at 7:00 P.M. Paris Review editor Emily Nemens will be in conversation with recent contributor Hernan Diaz and Peter Carey, whose 2006 Art of Fiction interview is featured in the anthology. The event is free and open to the public.
Writers at Work around the World is the latest volume published by the magazine’s in-house, limited-edition imprint, Paris Review Editions. Two currents have been central to the magazine since its founding in Paris in the fifties: internationalism, and documenting the thoughts, processes, and concerns of the greatest writers of our time. The book explores fiction from all corners of the globe, beginning with François Mauriac’s interview in 1953 and reaching forward to Dany Laferrière’s in 2017, stopping along the way with Chinua Achebe, Jorge Luis Borges, Ha Jin, Herta Müller, and Elena Ferrante, among others.
