The Chairs Are
Where the People Go
with Sheila Heti
and Misha Glouberman

Presented with Plan 99
"An odd and satisfying blend of philosophy, self-help, and, improbably, charade game theory... The Chairs Are Where the People Go reads like the wisdom of Benjamin Franklin as told to David Byrne.
— Jonathan Goldstein, contributing editor to This American Life and author of Lenny Bruce Is Dead.

Should neighborhoods change? Is wearing a suit a good way to quit smoking? Why do people think that if you do one thing, you’re against something else? Is monogamy a trick? Why isn’t making the city more fun for you and your friends a super-noble political goal? Why does a computer last only three years? How often should you see your parents? How should we behave at parties?

 

Sheila Heti , Misha Glouberman ’s friend and collaborator, wanted her next book to be a compilation of everything Misha knew. Together, they made a list of subjects. As Misha talked, Sheila typed. Join us for a taste of the resulting commentary on modern urban life.
