Thomas Cousineau is Professor of English at Washington College and a specialist in the field of international modernist writing. Along with editing a volume entitled Beckett in France, he has written four books, including two on Samuel Beckett, one on modernist fiction, and one on the novels of the Austrian writer Thomas Bernhard. He is now completing a book commissioned by the Dalkey Archive Press on the Portuguese writer Fernando Pessoa's modernist epic, The Book of Disquiet. This talk—on the ghostly presence of writers in their works—is related to his current book project, The S�ance of Reading: Uncanny Designs in Modernist Writing.

The Lit House Tea & Talk series features writers and scholars from Washington College and the Chestertown community sharing the research and topics that interest them personally.
