Nicole Krauss and Jenny Erpenbeck

Oct 9, 2017

Introductions by Andre Aciman and Megan O’Grady. Nicole Krauss’s new novel, Forest Dark, interweaves the stories of an older lawyer and younger novelist whose transcendental search leads them to the Israeli desert. “A brilliant novel,” wrote Philip Roth. “I am full of admiration.” In Go, Went, Gone, Jenny Erpenbeck — “one of the most significant German-language novelists of her generation” (The Millions) — explores the European refugee crisis through a retired professor’s encounters with African hunger-strikers.
