Gotham: New York City's Best Writers: Leslie Jamison and Charles D'Ambrosio
Jamison, author of The Empathy Exams, and D'Ambrosio, author of Loitering, discuss compassion, empathy and the art of the essay. Leslie Jamison's visceral and revealing essays ask essential questions about our basic understanding of others: How can we feel another's pain, especially when pain can be assumed, distorted, or performed? D'Ambrosio is the author of The Dead Fish Museum, The Point and Orphans, a collection of essays. His work is exacting and emotionally generous, often as funny as it is devastating. Curated and hosted by Rob Spillman. Books will be sold at this event.
