Lawrence Weschler

is a certified guru when it comes to essay writing. His more than twenty-year career at the New Yorker and his recent pieces in McSweeney's verify he can tell the non-fiction tale. In our conversation, he distills his knowledge about how to structure the essay—from cultural comedies to political tragedies.

Note: Lawrence Weschler will discuss Uncanny Valley in a free public program at the Hammer Museum on Tuesday, November 8 at 7pm.
