Listen 0:00

Guests: Luis Ferré-Sadurní, Nicole Krauss
NICOLE KRAUSS, author of the acclaimed novels Great House and The History of Love, comes in to talk about her new book, Forest Dark. It’s the story of four disparate characters whose destination is Israel – a wealthy 68-year old who sheds his possessions, a charismatic American rabbi, the rabbi’s beautiful daughters and a well-known novelist who leaves her family in Brooklyn. But first, we’ll get an update on the devastation that Hurricane Irma has caused in the Caribbean when we speak to LUIS FERRÉ-SADURNÍ of The New York Times.
