Mike DeCapite will read with Gail Scott at the Poetry Project at St. Mark’s Church (131 East 10th St., New York, NY 10003) on November 8, 2023. Tickets are available here.
Gail Scott’s newest work, a memoir about downtown New York poets around the Poetry Project in the early Obama years, is just out from Wave. Her 2021 poetics, Permanent (upside down) Revolution, engaging with radical prose across the continent, was short-listed for Le Grand Prix du livre de Montréal. City novels include the Obituary, a fractalled tale of suppressed diversity in post-millennial Québec, Heroine, about radical art and politics in turbulent 1980s Montréal; and My Paris, about a sad diarist looking for a lost avant-garde in 90s Paris. Her translation of Michael Delisle’s Le désarroi du matelot was a Governor General finalist. Scott lives in Montréal.
