New short story by Jennifer Egan

The January edition of The New Yorker features a new short story by Pulitzer Prize-winning author Jennifer Egan. What the Forest Remembers has two story lines: in one, set on a day in 1965, four men experience the emerging counterculture in a California redwood forest; in the other, the daughter of one of the men uses the technology of the future to experience his memories of that day. That technology is the backbone of Egan’s forthcoming book, The Candy House. She visited the John Adams in 2018 to discuss her bestseller Manhattan Beach.
