Join us for a launch party and mini-marathon reading to celebrate the launch of McSweeney's Quarterly, issue 42. Edited by novelist, Adam Thirlwell, the new issue is a monumental experiment in translated literature. New or little-known works by Kierkegaard, Enrique Vila-Matas, Krasznahorkai, et al., are each taken through six translators apiece, translated into English and then retranslated back out again (and again) to create altered, echoed and downright weird narratives by a dream collection of some of our finest writers.

With readings from contributors Alvaro Enrigue, Sheila Heti, Heidi Julavits, Julie Orringer, Andrew Sean Greer, Colm Toibin, Valeria Luiselli and John Wray.
