Brian Evenson, 2012 MFA Resident

Brian Evenson, 2012 MFA Resident

 

On 22 March 2012, the Kingston University MFA Residency Series was pleased to welcome author and director of the Brown University MFA program, Brian Evenson. He gave private tutorials throughout the day, ran a Teaching & Writing workshop and gave a spell-binding public reading in the evening.

Today, we are pleased to let you know that a fantastic short story of his has been published in the most recent issue of Granta Magazine. ‘And Yet’ is a tense, unnerving and utterly absorbing short story – all the things Evenson does best. It is available online here.

One night only! Thurs 22 Mar – ‘One of our best and bravest novelists’

THURS 22 MAR – 7:30pm

Penrhyn Road Campus, JG5002

Before you know it, you’re being carried through a ruined landscape on the backs of two men in hazard suits who don’t seem anything like you at all, heading toward something you don’t understand that may well end up being the death of you.

Welcome to the dark and twisted world of Brian Evenson.

Immobility will be released 10 April 2012.

 “One of our best and bravest novelists. No one else in America is writing like this,”
—Peter Straub, New York Times bestselling author of A Dark Matter

 

 “Evenson is stunning, a postapocalyptic Dashiell Hammett, in this blistering tale. I read Immobility from cover to cover without stirring from my chair, and I imagine most readers will share that fate.”
—Jesse Ball, Plimpton Prize–winning author of The Curfew

 “Brian Evenson is one of the treasures of American story writing.”
 —Jonathan Lethem, New York Times bestselling author of Chronic City

“There is not a more intense, prolific or apocalyptic writer of fiction in America than Brian Evenson.”
—George Saunders, New York Times bestselling author of The Braindead Megaphone

“Brian Evenson is one of the most distinguished, probing, and courageous writers of his generation.”
—Bradford Morrow, O. Henry Prize–winning author of Diviner’s Tale

In 2009 he also published the novel Last Days (which won the American Library Association’s award for Best Horror Novel of 2009) and the story collection Fugue State, both of which were on Time Out New York‘s top books of 2009. His novel The Open Curtain (Coffee House Press) was a finalist for an Edgar Award and an IHG Award. His work has been translated into French, Italian, Spanish, Japanese and Slovenian.
