Rowan Ricardo Phillips and Teju Cole on The circuit
November 20, 2018, 7:00 PM – 9:00 PM EST
Bookculture and The Paris Review present a discussion between Rowan Ricardo Phillips and Teju Cole concerning Phillips’s new book, The Circuit!
In The Circuit: A Tennis Odyssey, the award-winning poet—and Paris Review sports columnist—Rowan Ricardo Phillips chronicles 2017 as seen through the unique prism of its pivotal, revelatory, and historic tennis season. The annual tennis schedule is a rarity in professional sports in that it encapsulates the calendar year. And like the year, it’s divided into four seasons, each marked by a final tournament: the Grand Slams.
