In Case of Emergency: Letter to My Nephew

Caption: 

“Forgive me. My heart is an endless elegy. My heart is the ash every house of God leaves behind.” Joshua Bennett, author of the poetry collection, The Sobbing School (Penguin Books, 2016), reads a poem for “Black Joy,” an event presented by AfroPunk and the Strivers Row in New York.

"It is a plea for the idea that fiction is a way to access or try to access the truth, not a way to escape from it." Alejandro Zambra, recipient of the 2013 Prince Claus Award, speaks about his novel Ways of Going Home (Farrar, Straus and Giroux, 2013) and on what writing means to him. Zambra is featured in Page One in the July/August issue of Poets & Writers Magazine and in our original podcast reading from his latest novel, Multiple Choice (Penguin Books, 2016), translated from the Spanish by Megan McDowell.
