J. M. Tyree to read and discuss recent book at Ilsley
MIDDLEBURY — Author J.M. Tyree will read from and discuss his book “Vanishing Streets: Journeys in London” on Jan. 26 at Middlebury College.
The book is billed as an illustrated travelogue of the peripheries of “the world’s most visited city.” As he wanders through London, Tyree stumbles into the ghosts of Alfred Hitchcock, Graham Greene, the pioneers of the British Free Cinema Movement and more.
This book blends deeply personal writing with a foreigner’s observations on a world capital experiencing an unsettling moment of transition.
Tyree is nonfiction editor of New England Review and a graduate of Middlebury College, class of 1995. He is also the coauthor of “Our Secret Life in the Movies” and has contributed to Sight & Sound, The Believer, Film Quarterly and the British Film Institute’s Film Classics series of books.
He will speak at 4:30 p.m. on Jan. 26 at the Abernathy Room of the Axinn Center on the Middlebury campus.
