My essay, in the New York Review of Books Daily, is a reflection on “Spazio Disponibile,” a recent solo exhibition of the multimedia work of Dawit L. Petros alongside Maaza Mengiste’s second novel, The Shadow King. I am grateful for my friendship with both, these many years, as I continue to learn from them how history is an evolving proposition.
And more: Lucy McKeon interviewed me for last weekend’s NYRB newsletter, and wrote a sharp, generous profile.
