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.

"Forest Dark" was just named a Best Book of 2017 by Publishers Weekly.

Dr. Shai Secunda will lead the discussion.
