One Love … Or Twelve: An Evening with Monique Schwitter and Tess Lewis
Deutsches Haus at NYU writer-in-residence Monique Schwitter will read from her novel One Another, followed by a conversation with her translator, Tess Lewis.
One evening, when the narrator googles her first love instead of writing, she finds out he had thrown himself out of a ninth-floor window. Almost five years ago. She is as shocked by his suicide and by the fact that she hasn’t even missed him. But now the thought of him weighs on her more than it had when he was alive. What exactly is love? How can it come and go? Where does it go when it’s gone? And what exactly is going on with her current love? He’s sitting in his room, checking email or watching television.
"One Love ... or Twelve: An Evening with Monique Schwitter and Tess Lewis" is presented with the support of the Swiss Arts Council Pro Helvetia.
On view through September 5th
