Laird Hunt's new work feted in France and in the US

Following the January release of the French translation of Laird Hunt’s 2021 novel, ZORRIE, a three-day conference on the totality of Hunt’s body of work was held in France by the Université de Rouen, the Université de Paris Diderot and the Université de Paris-Créteil.  Closer to home, Laird Hunt’s collection of linked stories, FLOAT UP, SING DOWN, was recently released by Bloomsbury to glowing coverage in the New York Times, the Los Angeles Times, the Wall Street Journal, Minneapolis Star Tribune, the Times Literary Supplement, The Financial Times of London, the London Daily Mail, the Irish Examiner, as well as numerous other venues.
