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.
