Christopher Middleton Reads Tomorrow!
Readers of this blog know how much I revere Christopher Middleton, and I am thrilled that he will be coming to New York to celebrate the publication of Thirty Poems of Robert Walser tomorrow. The launch party will be co-hosted by Christine Burgin and New Directions (who have co-published this lovely book) and New York Review Books Classics, which has reprinted some of Middleton's older Walser translations. I hope you'll be able to join us tomorrow, Tuesday, May 15, at Picture Ray Studio, 245 West 18th St., 6:00 p.m. I'll be introducing the guest of honor, so expect to see me duly awestruck. For more information, see the New Directions events page.
