Richard Hugo House | Word Works: Mary Gaitskill
DATE: Thursday, March 16th
TIME: 7:00 pm
LOCATION: Washington Hall, 153 14th Avenue, Seattle, WA 98122 (map)
INFO: Award-winning author Mary Gaitskill is best known for delivering powerful stories of dislocation, longing, and desire with prose that “glides lightly over unsoundable depths” (Village Voice). The New Yorker called her National Book Award-finalist novel, Veronica, “one of the great American novels of the past decade,” and The New York Times Book Review called her latest, The Mare, “extraordinary…[A] magnificently hopeful novel.” What is that mysterious quality that makes the plot and characters of a novel or short story seem real, even when they are outlandish? Gaitskill calls this inner life of fiction the “inner weave,” and in her Word Works talk, “The Inner Weave: Mystery and Imagery in Fiction,” she will describe how this “inner weave” may be created through language, specifically nonverbal imagery with layers of meaning and/or feeling through which we may sense the hidden and irrational life of characters and stories—that is, what makes them most deeply real. Q&A will follow.

Rick, a private equity firm CEO, creates a PR nightmare when he throws himself an extravagant engagement party after forcing massive layoffs. Seth, one of Rick’s managing directors, tries to rectify the situation by pursuing a luggage company ready to be taken to the next level.
