On Tuesday, November 27, at 7pm, join us at Powerhouse Arena (28 Adams St, Brooklyn, NY) for a celebration of the reissue of Saul Steinberg's remarkable graphic work The Labyrinth, available from NYR Comics. Liana Finck, Françoise Mouly, and Joel Smith will be in a conversation moderated by Bill Kartalopolous.
In his introduction to The Labyrinth, Nicholson Baker writes, "Steinberg was a lyricist of the metal nib—a twirler of nonverbal non sequiturs. He dipped his bitterness—and his delight, and his pearl-handled, inescapable sadness—into an ink bottle, and he went to work every morning." Read the rest of Baker's introduction excerpted in The New York Times.
