A Conversation with Reif Larsen

Posted by Gestalten—03/2012

Earlier this month, we invited Reif Larsen, author of the critically acclaimed novel The Selected Works of T.S. Spivet (Die Karte meiner Träume) to give a talk about his passion... the art of visual storytelling at Gestalten Space.

For those of you who didn't make it and for those who simply can't get enough, we've produced special audio interview!

[[wysiwyg_imageupload:110:]]Reif Larsen's debut novel, The Selected Works Of T.S. Spivet, was a New York Times bestseller and is currently being adapted for the screen by French filmmaker Jean-Pierre Jeunet (Amélie). Larsen's essays and fiction have appeared in Tin House, one story, The Millions, and The Believer. He is currently the writer-in-residence at the Dutch Institute for Advanced Study and working on another novel about puppets and the uncertainty principle.
