Recent Histories

From the 1990s through the first two decades of the twenty-first century, these authors set their stories against the backdrop of changing neighborhoods, the rise of social media, and the growing irrelevance of the printed word. What is the place of literature amid all this erupting modernity? Dwyer Murphy (An Honest Living), Jess Walter (The Angel of Rome), and Ladee Hubbard (The Last Suspicious Holdout) offer their thoughts on writing the recent past and how we got to where we are today. Moderated by Tracy O’Neill (Quotients)
