Adam Wilson, whose hilarious debut novel, Flatscreen, concerns an unlucky 20-year-old geek who finds a father figure in a wheelchair-bound sex addict, recently received The Paris Review's Terry Southern Prize for humor for his story "What's Important Is Feeling." Tonight, at Paris Review Presents, he'll be reading along with Rowan Ricardo Phillips, author of the debut poetry collection The Ground. Paris Review editor Lorin Stein hosts the evening, which is a part of the reading series put on by the creative-writing department at NYU.
