To Be A Man
Chair: Mia Levitin
One of America’s most important novelists, New York Times bestseller and prize-winning author Nicole Krauss discusses her electrifying new short story collection.
Deftly weaving from one end of life to another, Nicole Krauss’s stories illuminate the moments in the lives of women in which the forces of sex, power and violence collide.
Beautiful, taut and dark, spinning across the world, from Switzerland, Japan and New York to Tel Aviv, Los Angeles and South America, To Be a Man delves with originality and timeliness into questions of masculinity and violence, regret and regeneration, control and desire; and shines a fierce, unwavering light onto men and women, and into the uncharted gulfs that lie between them.
