Jenny Hval to launch 'Paradise Rot' at MoMA PS1 Book Space

“In Paradise Rot, Jenny Hval creates a parallel world that’s familiar but subtly skewed. As intriguing and impressive a novelist as she is a musician, Hval is a master of quiet horror and wonder.—Chris Kraus, author of I Love Dick

Jenny Hval has received acclaim for her deeply visceral, surreal, and evocative explorations of politics and sexuality in her music. Now, she brings the same searing aesthetic vision to Paradise Rot, originally published in Norway in 2009 as Perlebryggeriet, but now finally translated to English:

Jo is in a strange new country for university and having a more peculiar time than most. In a house with no walls, shared with a woman who has no boundaries, she finds her strange home coming to life in unimaginable ways. Jo's sensitivity and all her senses become increasingly heightened and fraught, as the lines between bodies and plants, dreaming and wakefulness, blur and mesh.

This event is free and open to the public!
