ANN ARBOR – Acclaimed novelist Michael Cunningham will read from his newest book “Specimen Days” June 24 at UofM in Ann Arbor.
Cunningham is the author of the Pulitzer Prize and PEN/Faulkner award-winning “The Hours,” which became an Academy Award-winning film starring Nicole Kidman as Virginia Wolfe.
An earlier novel, “A Home at the End of the World,” was recently made into a film starring Colin Farrell and Sissy Spacek.
Cunningham’s new novel, “Specimen Days,” is comprised of interrelated sections with the same group of characters: a young boy, an older man, and a young woman. Presiding over each episode is the prophetic figure of the poet Walt Whitman.
“Specimen Days” has been called “a genre-bending, haunting, and transformative ode to life in our greatest city and a meditation on the direction and meaning of America’s destiny.”
