From California to Chicago and from Massachusetts to Southern Africa, Orner brilliantly captures the human experience through the cast of characters whom he brings to life in these singular and universally felt vignettes.
Full of wisdom, beauty, humor, and surprises, Orner’s literary gems have been published in Granta, Paris Review, The New York Times, The Atlantic Monthly, and McSweeney’s. His recent collection, Maggie Brown & Others, is a composite portrait of what it’s like to be a person in the world and the heaviness and lightness that makes up a life. It will be published by Little, Brown and Company this summer. The author will be present.
Produced and directed by WordTheatre® Artistic Director, Cedering Fox.
