Hugo House says
A lot can happen in an hour. Tobias Wolff’s famous short story “Bullet in the Brain” takes place over the span of a few minutes; the second half of the story, in fact, takes place over a fraction of a second. Great storytelling is, in a sense, about managing time within the story—the writer needs to choose when to slow time down, when to speed it up, and when to march along in step. In this unique evening of the 2014-15 literary series, you’ll encounter three remarkable fiction writers, writing stories that occur within the space of one hour.

On May 29th, at the last literary series event of the 2014-15 season, you’ll hear from Meg Wolitzer, author, most recently, of The Interestings; Justin Torres, author of the award-winning New York Times bestseller We The Animals; and Amelia Gray, author of Gutshot, forthcoming from FSG in April 2015. Abi Grace will provide the music, and our New Works Competition winner Lisa C. Taylor will read her winning piece.
