The Koffler Centre of the Arts and Ben McNally Books are thrilled to present an evening with Nicole Krauss in conversation with author Ami Sands Brodoff.
“One of America’s most important novelists” (The New York Times), Krauss is the award-winning, bestselling author of The History of Love. Her new novel, Forest Dark, interweaves the stories of two disparate individuals—an older lawyer and a young novelist—whose transcendental search leads them to the same Israeli desert.
Nicole Krauss is the author of The New York Times bestsellers Great House, a finalist for the National Book Award and Orange Prize, and The History of Love, which won the Saroyan Prize for International Literature, France’s Prix du Meilleur Livre Etranger, and was short-listed for the Orange, Medicis, and Femina Prizes. Her first novel, Man Walks Into a Room, was a finalist for the Los Angeles Times Book Award. She was selected as one of Granta’s Best Young American Novelists in 2007, and named to the New Yorker’s Twenty Under Forty list in 2010. Her fiction has been published in the The New Yorker, Harper’s Esquire, and The Best American Short Stories, and her books have been translated into more than thirty-five languages. She lives in Brooklyn, New York.
Ami Sands Brodoff is the award-winning author of three novels and a volume of stories. Her latest novel, In Many Waters, centres on three orphans whose lives intersect on the island of Malta and grapples with our worldwide refugee crisis. The White Space Between, which focuses on a mother and daughter struggling with the impact of the Holocaust, won a Canadian Jewish Book Award for Fiction. Bloodknots, a volume of thematically linked stories about families on the edge, was a finalist for The Re-Lit Award. Her debut novel, Can You See Me?was nominated for The Pushcart Prize and is a recommended book of NAMI (The National Alliance for the Mentally Ill). Ami contributes essays, articles and reviews to such diverse publications as Tablet, Vogue, The Globe and Mail, The Montréal Review of Books, and Quill and Quire. She has been awarded fellowships to Yaddo, The Virginia Center for the Creative Arts, The Ragdale Foundation, The St. James Cavalier Centre for the Arts in Valletta, Malta, among many others. A native New Yorker, Ami now lives in Montréal.
