Picking Evil Flowers with Gunnhild Øyehaug and Daniel Medin - AUP Sponsored Event

The American Library in Paris | 10 rue du Général Camou | 75007 Paris
Wednesday, September 13, 2023 - 19:30 to 20:30

In partnership with the Center for Writers and Translators, we are delighted to present Norway’s most celebrated contemporary writer, Gunnhild Øyehaug, in conversation on her latest collection of short fiction Evil Flowers. Across its 25 stories, Øyehaug renovates the form again and again, confirming Lydia Davis’s observation that each of her fictions is “a formal surprise, smart and droll.” Inspired by Charles Baudelaire, the groundbreaking book features an ornithologist whose brain slips into the toilet bowl, medicinal leeches that ingest information from fiberoptic cables, and an elderly woman who is trapped with a ravenous lion. Join us as we step inside Øyehaug’s wonderfully imaginative mind and explore the marvelous new directions she has paved for short fiction.
