Daniel Mendelsohn in Conversation with Choire Sicha at BookCourt

On Tuesday, May 20 at 7:00 pm, Daniel Mendelsohn will discuss his collection Waiting for the Barbarians: Essays from the Classics to Pop Culture with editor and author Choire Sicha at BookCourt in Brooklyn.

Mendelsohn has earned acclaim over the last decade in his writings for The New York Review of Books, The New Yorker, and The New York Times Book Review. He has been called “one of the greatest critics of our time” by Poets & Writers. Waiting for Barbarians highlights Mendelsohn’s ability to range across cultural and historical topics, from the film Avatar, to Susan Sontag’s journals, demonstrating Mendelsohn’s “sweep as a cultural critic is as impressive as his depth.”
