Nervous System: An Evening with Lina Meruane and Megan McDowell

Event Date: August 11, 2021 7:00 pm

We virtually hosted venerated Chilean author & NYU professor Lina Meruane for a convo on NERVOUS SYSTEM, her second novel. She was joined by translator Megan McDowell.

NERVOUS SYSTEM is an extraordinary clinical biography of a family, full of affection and resentment, dark humor and buried secrets, in which illness describes the traumas that can be visited not just upon the body, but on families and on the history of the countries—present and past—that we live in.
