Jean-Patrick Manchette’s Nada
Thu, September 5, 2019 @ 6:00 PM - 8:30 PM
Come celebrate the just published new translation of Nada, with Donald Nicholson-Smith, New York Review of Books and The MEP
This is a New York City reception for the latest translation of Nada, a newly-translated work of Jean-Patrick Manchette, to be published on August 27 by New York Review of Books. Donald Nicholson-Smith has been translating the work of Manchette for English-reading audiences for more than a decade. At this event at Unnamable Books we will celebrate the release of Nada, but our subject will also include all the works of Manchette, including other novels published by NYRB, such as The Mad and The Bad, Fatale, and Ivory Pearl. Donald will consider the influences on Manchette and share his long-term relationship with many of Manchette’s works
