Granta Audio: Don DeLillo & Paul Auster

|

Image by Julian Civiero/Millenium Images.

Don DeLillo and Paul Auster have collectively featured in the pages of Granta ten times over a period spanning nearly three decades, including their recent appearences in Horror. Though they are friends, they had not read and discussed their work in public together for over twenty years before taking to the stage this week, at Barnes & Noble, Union Square, New York, for the main event of Granta’s Horror issue.

The below recording includes both Paul Auster’s reading from his piece of memoir ‘Your Birthday Has Come and Gone’, and Don DeLillo’s reading of sections from his story, ‘The Starveling’, followed by their discussion with Granta editor John Freeman, about their work in the issue, ‘impoverished characters’ and living in and writing about New York.
