There is a cliché about music writing, sometimes attributed to Thelonious Monk, among others: ‘Writing about music is like dancing about architecture.’ If so, Nathaniel Mackey is compelled, rather than deterred, by the multiform madness of the enterprise. He is the Balanchine of the architecture dance.” –David Hajdu, The New York Times

National Book Award Winner, experimental writer and poet Nathanial Mackey reads from From a Broken Bottle Traces of Perfume Still Emanate: Volumes 1-3, which collects the first three installments – Bedouin Hornbook, Dijbot Baghostus’s Run, and Atet A.D. – of Mackey’s genre-defying work of fiction.
