Bill Cheng presents his novel Southern Cross the Dog
In conversation with author Alex Gilvarry

New York-based author Bill Cheng has already received expansive praise from fellow authors including Edward P. Jones, Colum McCann and Nathan Englander for his dazzling debut novel Southern Cross the Dog. Set in part against a backdrop of the devastating Great Flood of 1927 in Mississippi, this saga about the bonds between a group of black childhood friends was inspired by Cheng’s love of the blues, and captures the savagery and complexity of the Jim Crow South in the first half of the twentieth century. Cheng discusses his work tonight with fellow author and former Hunter College classmate Alex Gilvarry, author of the novel From the Memoirs of a Non-Enemy Combatant.
