Eugenides, Lahiri and Krauss: pop writers discuss writers for writers

Jeffrey Eugenides loves Denis Johnson’s writing (and Vladmir Nabokov, and Saul Bellow). Jhumpa Lahiri loves Mavis Gallant, Andre Dubus, Gina Berriault. Nicole Krauss choses Thomas Bernhard, Bruno Schulz, W.G. Sebald and Danilo Kiš. These are the “writers for writers” mentioned in a discussion hosted by the New Yorker Festival last night.
