Discussion:  City of Glass: It Was A Phone Call That Started It

Saturday November 9th, 11am, free

The Knitting Factory, 361 Metropolitan Avenue, Brooklyn

paul_auster_city_of_glassTo celebrate the 20th anniversary of the comics adaptation of Paul Auster’s novel City of Glass, Paul Auster, Paul Karasik (The New Yorker), David Mazzucchelli (Asterios Polyp), and Art Spiegelman (Maus) will come together for the first time ever to discuss the genesis of the adaptation of the book into illustrated form. The panel will be moderated by Bill Kartalopoulos.

With 20 foreign editions, this graphic novel has been cited by The Comics Journal as one of the “Top 100 Comics of the 20th Century.”  The story of how it came to be is filled with odd coincidences and connections not unlike a novel by Paul Auster, himself. Secrets about the book’s translation into comics will be deconstructed and revealed.
