Acclaimed writer and critic Tim Parks will talk about his work in this special IWP 50th Anniversary Reading. Parks is the author of many novels, translations, and works of nonfiction, including Where I'm Reading From, Italian Ways, Life and Work: Writers, Readers, and the Conversations Between Them, and the novel In Extremis. Of his work, Publishers Weekly has written, "Parks is one of the most eloquent and provocative critics," and the Sunday Times called him "a hugely talented writer, who deserves to be a good deal more celebrated than he is."

Tim Parks is Associate Professor of Literature and Translation at IULM University in Milan. He is a regular contributor to the New York Review of Books, for which he blogs.
