NYU gets a bad rap here: huge tuition, freshmen with no sidewalk etiquette, moving-day traffic congestion, etc. It goes without saying, though, that NYU has also shaped some of New York’s finest gray matter, and plenty is on display tonight at KGB Bar’s Emerging Writers Reading Series, where creative-writing grad students read alongside established authors. This week: self-proclaimed Chicana-feminist, playwright, poet, and novelist Ana Castillo, whose novel So Far from God tackles everything from cultural assimilation and politics to existential identity crises, in lush magical-realism.
