Nathan Englander presents Dinner at the Center of the Earth with Jordan Pavlin
October 12, 2017, 7:00 PM
Dinner at the Center of the Earth, the new novel from Nathan Englander, is a political thriller that unfolds in the highly charged territory of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and pivots on the complex relationship between a secret prisoner and his guard. From vastly different lives--a prisoner, a guard, an American waitress, a Palestinian in Berlin, an Israeli general--Nathan Englander has woven a powerful, intensely suspenseful portrait of a nation riven by insoluble conflict, even as the lives of its citizens become fatefully and inextricably entwined. Who is right, who is wrong--who is the guard, who is truly the prisoner?
Nathan Englander will be joined in conversation by his editor Jordan Pavlin.
