What interests me when I’m writing is being able to crawl into a character’s head and speak from his or her mouth. It’s not pulling the strings on a marionette, it’s not playing ventriloquist, and it’s not mimicry. It’s about inhabiting a character, and, at the same time, being totally unaware of what you’ve become.

- Nathan Englander (New Yorker, Dec. 2011)

Tomorrow Sarah Jones will meet with Nathan Englander and discuss the launch of his new book “What We Talk About When We Talk About Anne Frank.”

The room is booked solid (are you suprised??), but if seats do become available, we will offer them on a first come, first-served basis.
