  Award winner and author of Whites, Mating, Mortals, and Subtle Bodies reads from his work at the Weis Cinema, Campus Center, Bard College

Introduced by Mona Simpson, this reading is free and open to the public. Books will be available for sale and signing from Oblong Books & Music.

Subtle Bodies seems like one of the few novels written for grown-up people. Rush’s characters want to fall in love, to laugh and enjoy themselves. Their quirks, opinions, compulsions, and the cruel or considerate ways in which they treat their rivals and allies are all aspects of the personalities that keep us engrossed—along with the clarity and precision of Rush’s sentences, the freshness of his observations, and our awareness that we are reading something quite rare: a remarkably nonjudgmental novel about people who are perpetually and often harshly judging themselves and one another.” —Francine Prose, The New York Review of Books
