Inspired Writers Series

Hosted by MFA Program's Phil Klay

Tara Isabella Burton

Tara Isabella Burton, the novelist and essayist who has traced the forms of our 21st century search for meaning and transcendence, has written a propulsive and passionate coming of age story in which fevered longing, desires both sacred and profane, and darker undercurrents all come dramatically and tragically entangled. Her characters are so vibrantly alive, so searching, so raw, so foolish and so profound, and her writing about beauty and transcendence so powerful, this is a book that will captivate readers from the first page. Fairfield Professor Phil Klay will sit down with her to discuss the book, as well as her other work.

Tara Isabella Burton is the author of the novels The World Cannot Give (Simon & Schuster, 2022) and Social Creature (Doubleday, 2018) and the nonfiction Strange Rites: New Religions for a Godless World (Public Affairs, 2020). She is currently working on an intellectual genealogy of self-creation, Self-Made: Curating Our Image from Da Vinci to the Kardashians, to be published by Public Affairs in 2023.
