Sarah Manguso in conversation with Lorin Stein

03/06/2012 7:00 pm

Sheila Heti says "In The Guardians, Manguso holds up two kinds of love: the love for someone willfully at one's side (the new husband) and the love for someone willfully gone (the dear friend, a suicide). The limitations and complexities of romantic love played out in the present are here haunted on all sides by the simple expansiveness of platonic love, especially as seen through the lens of mourning. The living cannot compete with the dead. But marriage has its rights before any friendship. The mystery of where Manguso's heart will land propels us through this vivid meditation." Sarah Manguso will be in conversation with Lorin Stein, Editor of The Paris Review.
