About the event
Iosi Havilio, author of Open Door and Paradises, will be reading at McNally Jackson in New York City on April 24th. Details below!
About the Author: Iosi Havilio was born in Buenos Aires in 1974. He has become a cult author in Argentina after Open Door was highly praised by the outspoken and influential writer Rodolfo Fogwill and by the most influential Argentine critic, Beatriz Sarlo.
‘Iosi Havilio has caused a literary storm in Argentina. … His creation is of an inverted “paradise”, urban squalor a pole apart from the gardens of Paradise. It well reflects the inequalities and iniquities left by Argentina’s financial collapse at the turn of this century. This is the aftermath of an apocalypse.’ Amanda Hopkinson, The Independent
