Description: Join us for the launch party and mini-marathon reading to celebrate the release of McSweeney's Quarterly Concern Issue #42 at McNally Jackson in New York City on February 25th. Edited by novelist Adam Thirlwell, the new issue is a monumental experiment in translated literature. New or little-known works by Kierkegaard, Enrique Vila-Matas, Krasznahorkai, et al., are each taken through six translators apiece, translated into English and then retranslated back out again (and again) to create altered, echoed and downright weird narratives by a dream collection of some of our finest writers. Readings from contributors Alvaro Enrigue, Sheila Heti, Heidi Julavits, Julie Orringer, Colm Toibin, Valeria Luiselli, and John Wray.
