Renata Adler and David Shields at The Strand April 03, 2013

Tonight, April 5, at 7pm, Renata Adler, author of Speedboat and Pitch Dark (recently released by NYRB Classics) will join David Shields for a conversation with Daily Beast books editor Lucas Wittman at the Strand bookstore.

David Shields has been a vocal champion of Renata Adler’s writing. In How Literature Saved My Life, his most recent book, he writes, “I yield to no one in my admiration for Renata Adler’s first novel Speedboat; it is, I think, one of the most original and formally exciting American novels to have been published in the last twenty-five years.”

Speedboat and Pitch Dark, reissued by NYRB Classics last month to widespread acclaim, have already dazzled a new generation of readers across the country.
