About

Nicole Krauss’ fourth novel, Forest Dark, is a powerful, existential meditation on psychic displacement and restless Jewish movement between Here and There. It directly quotes classic Jewish sources, hints at others, and invites further pairings with biblical, talmudic, kabbalistic, and hassidic texts. In this second meeting of the Drisha Book Salon, we will learn about leaving and returning to Israel and Gan Eden, look at Jewish dreams and other doubled-states of being, and consider other sources that thematize and aspire to tranquility.

The text study and book discussion will be led by Shai Secunda.

Forest Dark has won numerous awards and was just named Best Book of 2017 by Publishers Weekly.
