“No living writer has narrated the drama of turning the messy and meaningless world into words as brilliantly, precisely, and analytically as Janet Malcolm…Her influence is so vast that much of the writing world has begun to think in the charged, analytic terms of a Janet Malcolm passage,” wrote Katie Roiphe in The Paris Review.
Janet Malcolm’s work is canonical in the realm of nonfiction. Join Janet Malcolm and Ian Frazier for a conversation on artists—painters, photographers, writers and critics—and their work. As Ian Frazier writes in the introduction, “Over and over Malcolm has demonstrated that an article in a magazine—something we see every day—can rise to the highest level of literature.”
Janet Malcolm is the prizewinning author of many books, including Forty-One False Starts.
A frequent contributor to The New Yorker, Ian Frazier’s books include Great Plains and The Fish’s Eye.
