Renee Gladman has published nine works of prose and one poetry collection. Her most recent book Calamities is a collection of linked essay-fictions on writing and time. Gladman approaches language as a space to enter and travel within, and her writing is attuned to the body as it moves through architectures of thought and experience. “The sentence is a street, a city for my narrators,” she says, or “a map of where we have gone and where we wish to go.”
Gladman’s reading coincides with the release of Prose Architectures, published by Wave Books. In this new monograph, Gladman explores the visual threshold between drawing and writing—“uncovering the moment whereby architecture emerges out of prose, the sentence becomes a drawing, and the act of writing narrative can be examined from bodily movements.”
This event is presented in partnership with the Seminary Co-op Bookstore.
