NYRB Classics Presents: A Celebration of Henry Green

NYRB Classics is putting out new editions of the works of Henry Green, who John Updike called "one of the most piquant and original English writers not only of his generation but of the century." To commemorate the reissue series, we’re partnering with NYRB to convene a panel for reading and discussion. Deborah Eisenberg, who wrote the introduction for the NYRB Classics edition of Back, is the writer of four collections of short stories: Transactions in a Foreign Currency, Under the 82nd Airborne, All Around Atlantis, and Twilight of the Superheroes. She is a recipient of the PEN/Malamud Award for Excellence in the Short Story, the PEN/Faulkner Award for Fiction, a Whiting Writer’s Award, a Guggenheim Fellowship, and MacArthur Foundation Fellowship. Craig Lucas is a Pulitzer Prize-nominated playwright, screenwriter, and director, who is the winner of an Obie Award, the New York Film Critics Circle Award, and the Lambda Literary Award. Fellowships include those from the Guggenheim and Rockefeller Foundations, the National Endowment for the Arts, and the Pew Charitable Trusts. Lorin Stein is editor-in-chief of The Paris Review, and his criticism and translations have appeared in The New York Review of Books, Harper's, The London Review of Books, The New Republic, and n+1. Michael Greenberg is a columnist for the Times Literary Supplement of London whose fiction and essays have appeared in The New York Review of Books, Bomb, The Village Voice, The New York Times, and The Boston Review.
