Claire Messud, the acclaimed author of The Emperor’s Children and The Woman Upstairs, is known for creating “unusual female characters with ferocious, imaginative inner lives” (New York Times Magazine). Her new book of essays, Kant’s Little Prussian Head and Other Reasons Why I Write, gives us the backstory of a novelist who’s just as compelling as her own creations. Messud reflects on her peripatetic childhood; her warm, complicated family; and her own lifelong dedication to art and literature, in conversation with prominent book critic Liesl Schillinger.
