Adventures in the Skin Trade

Over at NYPL Live:

Colum McCann meets with Michael Ondaatje at a very public fireplace.

Come hear these two best-selling authors—both of whom are often spoken of as “international mongrels” in the sense that their backgrounds and their range of literary influences are cast extraordinarily wide. “We get our voice from the voices of others,” says McCann, “and Ondaatje has long been a hero of mine.” This is a fireside chat that promises to be offbeat, informal, unrehearsed and thrillingly passionate.
