Hadron Collider, Price, Misrach
Friday, May 23, 2008
Smashing atoms and colliding worlds. We try to wrap our brains around the Large Hadron Collider, the world’s largest particle accelerator, which revs up this summer. Writer Lydia Millet imagines a quantum accident at the Collider in a story, read by Martha Plimpton. On the Lower East Side of Manhattan, two worlds collide violently in Richard Price’s novel Lush Life. And, in time for the unofficial start of summer, the eerie and intense beach scenes of Richard Misrach.
