Event Description


A pioneer of fiction speaks about her characters and herself.


The best-selling British author Rachel Cusk is credited for reinventing the form of the novel, hooking readers with an inimitable voice, and unconventional sense of plot. In her groundbreaking trilogy—Outline, Transit, and Kudos—Cusk explores the nature of family, art, love, and suffering as her protagonist, a writer named Faye, encounters friends and strangers in the course of her daily life. Through a series of conversations that read almost as oral histories, Cusk reveals a panoply of people and places who cross Faye’s path and shape her world.


As the final volume makes its paperback debut, Cusk looks back at the trilogy as a whole to discuss her unique brand of suspense and storytelling. She will be joined in conversation by author and translator Jenny McPhee.
