Please join us on Wednesday, March 22 at 7 pm in Room LL430 for a reading by Lance Olsen. He will read from his latest publication, Always Crashing in the Same Car, which has been praised as “a phantasmagorical mosaic of facts and fantasies concerning the life and art of David Bowie, entirely appropriate to its subject, for whom the mask always melted into the face and vice versa.”
Lance Olsen is the author of more than 30 books of and about innovative writing, including, most recently, the novels Skin Elegies (Dzanc, 2021) and My Red Heaven (Dzanc, 2020). His short stories, essays, and reviews have appeared in hundreds of journals and anthologies, such as Conjunctions, Black Warrior Review, Fiction International, Village Voice, BOMB, McSweeney’s, and Best American Non-Required Reading. A Guggenheim, Berlin Prize, D.A.A.D. Artist-in-Berlin Residency, Rockefeller Center Bellagio Residency, N.E.A. Fellowship, and Pushcart Prize recipient, as well as a Fulbright Scholar, Olsen teaches experimental narrative theory and practice at the University of Utah.
This event is free and open to all.
