New York is Buzzing About Insectopedia

The 5/2 New York Times Book Review calls Hugh Raffles’s Insectopedia “impossible to categorize, wildly allusive and always stimulating . . . a disconcerting, fantastical, (multi-)eye-opening journey into another existence.” Check out Raffles’s Stray Questions Q&A on the NYTimes’s Paper Cuts blog.

Don’t miss Raffles’s INSECTOMEDIA event on Friday, May 7 at 7 pm at Cabinet Magazine in Brooklyn. The free event will be an insecto-happening: Film, light, sound, cocktails, and many animals. As Time Out New York says, it’s “sure to be this week’s only book event that features live insects.”
