We’ll have an intimate conversation with the authors of…insightful, resonant stories by “a true craftsman” (New York Times); a Chechen War-set first novel whose author hoped to “combine the tension of a character-driven thriller with the richness of a historical epic” and succeeded; the tale of a Japanese novelist, the tortured actor who inspired his work, and the translator who “sabotaged” it; and sensitive fact-based fiction in which a young Argentine woman who knows her father played a part in her country’s recent, terrible past learns more from a mysterious stranger.
