The master of the comical Southern gothic penned some of the most significant - and unsettling - works of racial and familial misunderstanding of the 20th century. Here we present some of her best: tales of mystery and evil, Catholic guilt, human misfits, and divining grace. In partnership with Library of America.

An Evening with Karl Ove Knausgaard

An evening with the sensationally popular Norwegian author of My Struggle, the six-volume autobiographical novel. Knausgaard will introduce readings by acclaimed actors of stories he admires and an excerpt from My Struggle Book IV, which is published in the U.S. on May 5 by Archipelago Books. Event includes a conversation and a book signing to follow.

"Every detail is put down without apparent vanity or decoration, as if the writing and the living are happening simultaneously. There shouldn't be anything remarkable about any of it except for the fact that it immerses you totally. You live his life with him. . ." - Zadie Smith, New York Review of Books

"No writer has emerged on the world stage to more acclaim in at least a decade ... readers of every stripe, it seems, are talking about Knausgaard." -- Evan Hughes, The New Yorker
