  • Jeffrey Yang in Conversation With John Beer

    Situated in the outreaches of southwest Texas, the town of Marfa has long been an oasis for artists, immigrants looking for work, and ranchers, while the ghosts of the indigenous and the borders between languages and nations are apparent everywhere. PEN/Joyce Osterweil Award-winning poet and translator Jeffrey Yang experienced the vastness of desert, township, sky, and time itself as a profound clash of dislocation and familiarity. Yang’s Hey, Marfa (Graywolf) is a fascinating, multifaceted work – an anti-travel guide, an anti-Western, a book of last words – that is a lyrical, anthropological investigation into history, culture, and extremity of place. Yang will be joined in conversation by poet John Beer, author of Lucinda.

    Someone has to take the blame. When the Britannia Theatre's balcony collapses, killing over a dozen people, the fingers point at the architect. He should have known better, should have made it safer, should have done something. Douglas Layton knows the flaw wasn't in his design, but he can't fight a guilty verdict. When he is finally released from prison, he has nothing: no job, no family, nowhere to go. He needs to assume a new identity and rebuild his life. But he soon finds himself digging up the past in a way he never anticipated. If the collapse was not an accident… who caused it? And why? And what if they find out who he used to be? The Fallen Architect (Sourcebooks Landmark) is the riveting new novel from Charles Belfoure, author of the The Paris Architect.
