Michael Cunningham

Specimen Days
Sep 29, 2005  -  De Rode Hoed, Keizersgracht 102, Amsterdam

MCCunningham’s The Hours won the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction, as well as the prestigious PEN/Faulkner award, and went on to become an Academy Award-winning film starring Nicole Kidman, Julianne Moore, and Meryl Streep. An earlier novel, A Home at the End of the World, was recently made into a film starring Sissy Spacek and Colin Farrell. In his brand new novel, Specimen Days, Cunningham weaves a complex and elegant trio of tales involving terrorist bombings, adolescent prophets, outer space refugees and the poetry of Walt Whitman. Cunningham’s writing has appeared in Esquire, Vogue, The Atlantic Monthly, The Paris Review and The New Yorker. Cunningham also visited the John Adams Institute in 1992, 2010 and 2014.
