Blind Musicians and The Peshawar Bazaar

Hari Kunzru has gone digital with his multimedia essay “Twice Upon a Time” for the Atavist. The Atavist is going print with their first paper book, Kamila Shamsie‘s A God in Every Stone. Kunzru’s essay is a take on New York through music and memory, with the sounds of the blind musician Moondog. Shamsie offers an epic tale that starts in London on the eve of WWI and travels through Peshawar, Flanders, and archaeological time. AAWW’s Ken Chen moderates a talk with them at McNally Jackson September 18. Get your tweeting thumbs ready.
