Last September Genese Grill published two short Robert Musil essays she had translated here at NC — Robert Musil: Speed is Witchy! & Intensivism — Translated by Genese Grill. That led to a book offer from Contra Mundum Press. And, Lo! the book is out or nearly out. It’s called Thought Flights. Launch party and reading are in New York at the Zinc Bar May 10, 5pm. Save the date. Book your flights. It’s a big event in Musil-Land, and NC readers were there at the beginning. A great honour for us to have Genese on the masthead.


Here’s the invite and address:

Please join us for a book launch party and reading of my new translation of Robert Musil’s small prose, Thought Flights (Contra Mundum Press, April, 2015) at the glamorous Zinc Bar, at 82 West Third Street, New York, on Sunday, May 10th, at 5 p.m., accompanied by Stephen Callahan reading from Seities, his collection of prose pieces in progress.
