Like his 2009 National Book Award-winning opus, Let the Great World Spin, and 2013’s TransAtlantic, Colum McCann’s grand and exhilarating novel Apeirogon is filled with symphonic sentences that sing of the human cost of an impossibly complex situation: In this case, the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
Apeirogon’s flashback–filled narrative unfolds in a single day as two men (inspired by people the author met in real life)—friends from either side who call each other “brother”—battle the firestorms of ancient hatreds while trying to heal from their own tragedy.
Lisa Freund will review the novel on Zoom November 17th at 3:00. As Lisa stated this “novel has so many layers”
Lisa is the perfect person to start our discussion as she has been to the area numerous times as she has extended family in Israel. She promises some slides of the area and the check points. This is not a novel or a discussion you will want to miss.
