Joshua Cohen is author of five fiction works, and his essays have appeared in Harper’s, The New York Times, Bookforum, Tablet Magazine, London Review of Books, and elsewhere. His books include A Heaven of Others, the 800-page epic Witz, and his newest, Four New Messages, a quartet of “urgent and visionary dispatches that seek to save art, sex, and even alienation from corporatism and technology run rampant.” Cohen lives in New York City, and is in conversation here with McSweeney‘s editorial director Ethan Nosowsky at Litquake’s Epicenter. This event was recorded live at Tosca Cafe in San Francisco. Co-presented by City Lights Books.
