Please join us for the US launch of The White Review No. 8 at McNally Jackson bookshop, New York on 11 September 2013.
To mark the occasion, Lauren Elkin will be joined in conversation by Siri Hustvedt, author of The Summer Without Men, and Living, Thinking, Looking, and Kate Zambreno, author of Heroines and Green Girl.
