Garth Greenwell, whose new novel CLEANNESS is one of the most acclaimed literary works of 2020, will read from his fiction. The New York Times called CLEANNESS “incandescent” and noted that Greenwell “has an uncanny gift, one that comes along rarely.” Harper’s magazine said the novel is an “electrifying portrait of sex’s power to lacerate and liberate, to make and unmake our deepest selves …” Greenwell is also the author of WHAT BELONGS TO YOU, which won the British Book Award for Debut of the Year, was longlisted for the National Book Award, and was a finalist for six other awards, including the PEN/Faulkner Award, the James Tait Black Memorial Prize, and the Los Angeles Times Book Prize. A New York Times Book Review Editors’ Choice, it was named a Best Book of 2016 by over fifty publications in nine countries and is being translated into a dozen languages. His fiction has appeared in The New Yorker, The Paris Review, A Public Space, and VICE, and he has written criticism for The New Yorker, the London Review of Books, and the New York Times Book Review, among others. He lives in Iowa City.

Greenwell appears as part of the celebration of 50 Years of LGBTQ Studies at UNL, recognizing UNL’s pioneering role in the development of queer studies nationwide.
