A house that’s bigger on the inside than the outside. A road trip across history with two ageless teenagers. Swords, kites, and cats. In his writing, Mark Z. Danielewski reenvisions the possibilities of both text and image. Each in their own way, his works intertwine plot with unusual typography (words in colors, pages that have to be turned and flipped, striking use of blank space). Join us for an evening of discussion, reading, and creativity as we explore the author’s labyrinthian imagination. 

MZD is a writer of experimental fiction. He is the author of House of Leaves (2000), The Fifty Year Sword (2005), Only Revolutions (2006), The Familiar (five volumes, 2015–2017), and The Little Blue Kite (2019), as well as several short stories. His fiction has been translated into over a dozen languages. He was awarded the New York Public Library’s Young Lions Fiction Award and was nominated for the National Book Award.
