Ep 44: Transformation & Self-Realization in Nicole Krauss’ “Forest Dark”

Nicole Krauss is an award-winning, best-selling author, was on the New Yorker’s list of “20 Under 40” and her latest novel Forest Dark, about the personal transformation of two seemingly disparate individuals, has been called “elegant, provocative and mesmerizing.”

The History of Love author who Roxanne calls “provocatively philosophical, fiercely intelligent and poetic,” came straight to Just the Right Book on the day of her debut to talk about her new book, which has been called “a brilliant novel” by Pulitzer Prize winning author, Phillip Roth.

Make sure to stay tuned after the interview with Nicole for a special installment of What’s On the Front Table with Lissa Muscatine, one of the owners of the renowned Politics and Prose Bookstore in Washington, DC. Muscatine, a former speechwriter for Hillary Clinton also tells Roxanne about her recent interview with Clinton when the former Secretary of State kicked off her fifteen-city tour at Politics and Prose to promote her new book, What Happened.
