Siri Hustvedt & Michael Tisserand

Date: 
Sunday, July 23, 2017 - 9:00pm

Tonight on Inquiry we talk with novelist and writer SIRI HUSTVEDT. She has a PhD in English Literature from Columbia University and is a lecturer in Psychiatry at the Weill Medical School of Cornell University. Her new book is A WOMAN LOOKING AT MEN LOOKING A WOMEN: ESSAYS ON ART, SEX, AND THE MIND.

“Krazy Kat” by George Herriman was one of the most unique, visually creative, and surreal comic strips to ever adorn a commercial newspaper. Yet for decades it was not known that Herriman was an African American who “passed” for white and he never told anyone he was close with in the newspaper business. Tonight on Inquiry we talk about the wild life of George Herriman and the origins of the beloved Krazy Kat, Ignatz and Ofissa Pup and the whole crazy crew when we speak with writer MICHAEL TISSERAND. His new biography is titled: KRAZY: GEORGE HERRIMEN, A LIFE IN BLACK AND WHITE.
