The author will read from his recent work Animalinside (2010), an animated dialogue between text and image created in collaboration with the painter Max Neumann.

Lszl Krasznahorkai has won the America Award in Literature (2014), the Best Translated Book Award (2013), the Brcke-Berlin Prize (2010), and numerous other international awards. His work has been translated into English and many other languages. Krasznahorkai was invited to Columbia as part of the Harriman Institutes Contemporary Writers Series, inaugurated last year by the Russian novelist Mikhail Shishkin. During his residency, Krasznahorkai is teaching a seminar on artistic collaboration across media in East Central Europe. His month-long course focuses on his work with the Hungarian film director, Bla Tarr, and the German painter, Max Neumann.
