Francine Prose discusses her novel My New American Life ($25.99). Set in the aftermath of 9/11, this work offers a darkly humorous, bitingly real portrait of a particular moment in history, when a nation’s dreams and ideals gave way to a culture of cynicism, lies, and fear. Beneath its surface, the novel is a more serious consideration of immigration and what it means to be an American. Prose is the author of Reading Like a Writer.
