About

Harvard Book Store welcomes renowned author, professor, and New Yorker staff writer JAMES WOOD for a discussion of his latest essay collection, Serious Noticing: Selected Essays 1999–2019.

About Serious Noticing

Ever since the publication of his first essay collection, The Broken Estate, in 1999, James Wood has been widely regarded as a leading literary critic of the English-speaking world. His essays on canonical writers (Gustav Flaubert, Herman Melville), recent legends (Don DeLillo, Marilynne Robinson) and significant contemporaries (Zadie Smith, Elena Ferrante) have established a standard for informed and incisive appreciation, composed in a distinctive literary style all their own.
