Award-winning, New York Times bestselling author of The History of Love, Nicole Krauss has twice been shortlisted for the Bailey’s Women’s Prize for Fiction, nominated for the National Book Award, selected as one of Granta’s Best Young American Novelists and had her work translated into more than 35 languages. Her new novel, Forest Dark, is a tale of transformation: of an older lawyer who’s given away most of his possessions and travelled to Israel to do something to honour his parents, and a young, well-known novelist named Nicole who’s troubled by writer’s block. Each is drawn to Tel Aviv on a journey of self-discovery that has life-changing consequences. Krauss has said that reading literature is “an opportunity for compassion.” You’ll enjoy being offered that opportunity tonight in the company of this literary talent.
