Nicole Krauss: Forest Dark

Hosted by

Nicole Krauss took a risk by writing about two protagonists who never meet.  One is a successful man who has decided to unburden himself by giving away all that he has acquired. The other is a novelist troubled with writer’s block and the unraveling of her marriage. Krauss says she let herself follow the characters into the unknown. The writing process sometimes felt as if she – and they – were getting lost. But it led  Forest Dark (Harper) to mystical glimpses of awe and wonder.
