In conversation with Ben McNally, Nathan Englander – Pulitzer Prize-finalist and the best-selling author of For the Relief of Unbearable Urges – will discuss his latest novel, Dinner at the Centre of the Earth. A political thriller that unfolds in the highly charged territory of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, the novel pivots on the complex relationship between a secret prisoner and his guard.
“Englander tells the tangled truth of life in prose that, as ever, surprises the reader with its gnarled beauty.” —Michael Chabon
