Sarah Plimpton Reads From “Hurry Along” at Canio’s Books
Canio's Books, Sag Harbor,
On Saturday, November 17 at 5 p.m. Canio’s will host poet and painter, Sarah Plimpton reading from her fiction debut, Hurry Along published by Pleasure Boat Studio. Hurry Along is a luscious non-narrative map of shifting emotional and physical landscapes born out of the quotidian lives of people, trees, animals, beaches, and more. It tells the story of a family, in flashbacks and fragments, challenging the reader to explore new territories and discover new beauty as the story unfolds.
Paul Auster declares, “This is a novel about looking and breathing, about being alive in one’s own skin, about the physical properties of colors and flowers and light, about the transformative powers of the human eye… Hurry Along is one of the most radical books I have read in years.”
Sarah Plimpton is a painter and a poet. She divides her time between New York City and France. Her poems and prose have appeared in The New York Review of Books, The Paris Review, and the Denver Quarterly, among other magazines. A collection of poems has been translated into French, L’Autre Soleil, and published by LeCormier, Belgium. Her paintings and artist’s books are in various museum collections including the Whitney Museum of American Art, the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, and the Metropolitan Museum, of Art.
