Kammer 2

Authors in conversation: JEFFREY EUGENIDES

READING (IN ENGLISH) AND DISCUSSION (GERMAN AND ENGLISH) WITH JEFFREY EUGENIDES AND FLORIAN KESSLER (MODERATION.)

Lecture

Jeffrey Eugenides is one of the best-known contemporary US authors. His novels, including “Middlesex” and “The Marriage Plot”, belong alongside literature by authors like Jonathan Franzen and David Foster Wallace. His first novel, “The Virgin Suicides”, was recently premiered in Susanne Kennedy’s Kammerspiele production. This was reason enough for Jeffrey Eugenides to come to Munich. Before the performance of “The Virgin Suicides” on 3 July, Eugenides will read passages from his novel and speak to Florian Kessler (editor of Hanser publishing house).
