Description

Esmé Weijun Wang will be joining us to discuss her New York Times-bestselling memoir, The Collected Schizophrenias.

 

'Dazzling ... in her kaleidoscopic essays, memoir has been shattered into sliding and overlapping pieces ... mind-expanding' The New York Times Book Review

 

Written with immediacy and unflinching honesty, The Collected Schizophrenias is Esmé Weijun Wang’s unexpectedly witty story of being diagnosed with schizoaffective disorder, the wider manifestations of schizophrenia in her life, and how we label and discuss mental illness more broadly. Wang’s analytical, intelligent eye cuts right to the core and provides unique insight into a condition long misdiagnosed and much misunderstood.

 

Esmé Weijun Wang is the author of The Border of Paradise. She received the Whiting Award in 2018 and was named one of Granta's Best of Young American Novelists of 2017. The Collected Schizophrenias is a New York Times bestseller, and won the Graywold Nonfiction Prize.

 

Please join us for what promises to be a fantastic evening of discussion.
