Gen’ichiro Takahashi reads from and discusses Sayonara, Gangsters, his first novel to be translated in English. One of the most experimental writers of his time, Takahashi is considered a way-more-out-there literary cousin to Haruki Murakami. Joining him is Beijing avant-garde filmmaker Meng Jing-hui, whose acclaimed film, Chicken Poets, was praised at the TriBeCa, Toronto and Venice Film Festivals in 2002.  Following a screening of Chicken Poets, the two discuss their literary and artistic inspirations.

Followed by a reception and booksigning.

Tickets: $10; Japan Society members & seniors $8, students $5.
