Profoundly talented novelist Donald Antrim proves to be just as skillful in short form as long. Sliding in and out of realism and fairytale, his new collection of short stories The Emerald Light in the Air movingly observes romantic failure and unravelling anxiety with a candid tenderness. "What is it about Antrim?” writes Lorin Stein. “He writes as if prose were his native language: his sentences have the matter-of-fact pathos and absurdity of dreams.” Antrim will be joined in conversation by his editor Mitzi Angel, publisher of Faber and Faber.
