THE NEAREST THING TO LIFE: An evening with James Wood


James Wood, book critic for The New Yorker, and author of The Fun Stuff:  And Other Essays and How Fiction Works, will visit McNally Jackson to discuss his new memoir The Nearest Thing to Life. A blend of criticism and memoir drawn from his 2013 Mandel Lectures for the Humanities, Wood’s new book shows us that the stakes of fiction really are our own lives.
