In conversation with Anthony Marra
Writing “with the wisdom of a hundred lives lived” (Harper’s Bazaar), Celeste Ng is the author of the No. 1 New York Times bestselling novels Everything I Never Told You and Little Fires Everywhere, the latter of which was adapted into a critically acclaimed Hulu series. Ng’s work has been published in over 30 languages, and she has received National Endowment for the Arts and the Guggenheim Foundation fellowships, along with winning a Pushcart Prize and the Amazon Book of the Year Award. In her latest novel, Ng tells the tale of a nightmarish near-future in which a Chinese American boy navigates an underground network of librarians in search of his mother and her banned poetry.
Anthony Marra is the New York Times bestselling author of The Tsar of Love and Techno and A Constellation of Vital Phenomena, winner of the National Book Critics Circle’s John Leonard Prize and the Anisfield-Wolf Book Award, and longlisted for the National Book Award.
