The human condition is as recognizable as it is elusive. Is writing merely a vehicle toward the understanding of the human condition, or is it an outcrop from the human condition itself? To discuss are Spanish author Jon Bilbao, whose novel Still the Same Man explores man’s deepest and darkest instincts; Italian writer Michela Murgia, who attended theological studies and worked as a religion teacher before making her literary debut with Il mondo deve sapere, which inspired the film Tutta la vita davanti by Paolo Virzi; and Scot Slaby, a poet whose first chapbook, The Cards We've Drawn, won the 2013 Bright Hill Press National At Hand Chapbook Competition. Moderated by Carly Hallman, author of the novel Year of the Goose.
