Novelist Max Yeh will read from his new novel, STOLEN ORANGES: Letters between Cervantes and the Emperor of China.
Max Yeh, described by E.L. Doctorow as “a writer on a rampage, with an appetite for history,” brings together the disparate lives of the emperor, Cervantes, and the historian, united through time by their deep interest in literature, philosophy, politics, and the burden of demented mothers, in this dazzling meditation on the intricacies of memory, language, and time that recalls the works of Jorge Luis Borges and Italo Calvino.
