Alexander Chee

Alexander Chee makes a welcome return to Hugo House to read from his first collection of nonfiction, How to Write an Autobiographical Novel (Mariner Books), named a Most Anticipated Book of 2018 by Esquire, Book Riot, The Rumpus, Paste, and Buzzfeed.

“Alex Chee explores the realm of the real with extraordinarily beautiful essays. Being real here is an ambition, a haunting, an impossibility, and an illusion. What passes for real, his essays suggest, becomes real, just as life becomes art and art, pursued this fully, becomes a life.” —Eula Biss.

Alexander Chee’s novels include Edinburgh and Queen of the Night. Co-presented with HUGO HOUSE. Free/seating is limited. Click below for more information.
