1. Renata Adler at the Center for Fiction

     

    “Well, you know. His wife was chased by an elephant.”
    “No.”
    “How extraordinary.”
    “Yes. it was too awful. They were watching the elephants, when she simply fell down. The elephant ran over and knelt on her. she was in the hospital for months.”
    “No.”
    “How extraordinary.”
    “Quite different from anything she ever got from Roger, I expect.”

    Renata Adler reading last night, perhaps from this, one of her favorite passages from Speedboat, at the Center for Fiction. Photograph via the twitter feed of the N+1 film supplement.
