Event Description

David Mitchell’s novels include The Thousand Autumns of Jacob de Zoet, a historical epic about a Dutch accountant’s adventures in feudal Japan, and Number9Dream, described as “an intoxicating ride through Tokyo’s dark underworlds and the even more mysterious landscapes of our collective dreams.” Mitchell’s celebrated Cloud Atlas, which erases the boundaries of genre and language with six interconnected stories that take the reader from the 19th century in the remote South Pacific to a post-apocalyptic distant future, was described as a “Nabokovian delight in word play” by The Washington Times.


Tom Barbash is the author of a novel, The Last Good Chance, and a nonfiction book, On Top of the World: Cantor Fitzgerald, Howard Lutnick, and 9/11. His work has appeared in McSweeney’s, The Believer, and The New York Times. Barbash is a former Wallace Stegner Fellow at Stanford University and currently teaches at California College of the Arts.
