Already highly regarded for his first novel, What Belongs to You, when Garth Greenwell came out with Cleanness in 2020, the acclaim was extraordinary. On the cover of The New York Times Book Review, Colm Tóibín called it “bravura writing,” in the New Yorker, Alex Ross wrote, “These stories are masterpieces of radical eroticism … Tenderness, violence, animosity, and compassion are the outer edges of what feels like a total map of the human condition,” and the Times Literary Supplement declared Greenwell “the finest writer of sex currently at work … certainly the most exhilarating.” This exhilarating writer will be in conversation with Fairfield University MFA writing professor and author Phil Klay.
