Festival of the Book - The Fact of a Body
Friday, March 23, 2018, 10:00am - 11:30am
Hits : 343

Alexandria Marzano-Lesnevich (The Fact of a Body: A Murder and a Memoir) discusses her remarkable story, a mixture of true crime and her own life story, both involving violence, abuse, secrets, and silence. In conversation with Anne Coughlin, UVa School of Law.

Why should you attend?

“The balancing act here performed between autobiography and journalism, documentary and imagination, witnessing and reckoning, the tender and the terrible, is shrewd and graceful. In the hands of a lesser human or writer, it could have all fallen apart; instead, Alexandria Marzano-Lesnevich has given us an exquisite and exquisitely difficult work of art that makes a fierce claim on our attention, conscience, and heart.” ―Maggie Nelson, author of the NBCC award-winning Argonauts

“Surprising, suspenseful, and moving…A book that defies both its genres, turning into something wholly different and memorable.” ―Booklist, starred review

“Utterly remarkable. It isn’t just that the writing can be beautiful… it isn’t just her coruscating honesty, it is that she understands how very partial the stories we tell ourselves are: the story of themselves that parents choose to tell their children as much as the stories that defence and prosecuting counsels create about events and people. Stories, she sees, are both essential and treacherous… Heroically accomplished.” ―The Times of London
