CityLit Stage

Celebrated writers and spouses Leslie Jamison (The Empathy Exams, 2012 Graywolf Press Nonfiction Prize) and Charles Bock (Alice & Oliver, Beautiful Children, 2009 Sue Kaufman Prize for First Fiction) and are featured in this session hosted by CityPaper’s Karen Houppert. Jamison’s collection of essays ask essential questions about our basic understanding of others: How should we care about one another? How can we feel another’s pain, especially when pain can be assumed, distorted, or performed? Is empathy a tool by which to test or even grade each other? Bock’s novel, based on the author’s experience, creates an unflinching yet deeply humane portrait of a young family’s journey through a medical crisis, laying bare a couple’s love and fears as they fight for everything that’s important to them.
