Rizzoli Bookstore: Michael Ondaatje: A Year of Last Things with Jordan Pavlin



6:00 pm – 7:30 pm


1133 Broadway

He learned again the breaking line’s breath-like leap…

Join Michael Ondaatje—Booker Prize-winning author of The English PatientWarlightAnil’s Ghost, and other acclaimed works of fiction and memoir—as he reads from and discusses his new collection of poetry, A Year of Last Things, in conversation with Knopf editor-in-chief Jordan Pavlin.

“In A Year of Last Things, Ondaatje comes close to writing something like a timeless poem, ‘a memory poem’ that reflects outside and inside time at the same moment, recording the mercurial, mysterious feeling of being alive,” writes Terrance Hayes. “The poems become intimate, unresolved stories, loyal to feeling and presence, the lyricism of dreams applied to narratives of lives and landscapes.”

This event is presented by the Authors Guild Foundation with support from the Academy of American Poets.

PLEASE NOTE: All books will be pre-signed by Michael Ondaatje and available for sale after the event. There will be no signing line.

RSVPs are encouraged but not required. Seating is limited and will be first come, first served. There will be lots of standing room. Doors open at 5:30 pm.
