LeFrak Concert Hall                         

Norman Rush is the National Book Award-winning author of the collection of stories Whites, and the novels Mating, Mortals, and, most recently, Subtle Bodies, forthcoming this fall. The New York Review of Books has described the work of Mr. Rush as “the best rendering of erotic politics… since D. H. Lawrence.” The Christian Science Monitor has described the work of Mr. Rush as “A detonation of talent that threatens to incinerate competitors for miles around. As an investigator of marital relations, he upstages Updike; as a critic of political hypocrisy, he has more wrath than Roth.” The New York Times Book Review has said: “Norman Rush has now produced three books so full of brainwork, contour, sinew and laser light that we don’t want to leave home without him: we would never notice or feel as much.”

In addition to reading from his work, Mr. Rush will be interviewed by Leonard Lopate.
