Bestselling American novelist Nicole Krauss joined the John Adams Institute to discuss her new novel Forest Dark, translated as Donker Woud by Ambo Anthos. The New York Times described Krauss as “one of America’s most important novelists”, and is best known for her novel The History of Love.

Forest Dark is a story about the personal transformation of two dissimilar characters, an older lawyer and a young novelist, whose paths lead them to the same Israeli desert.  Krauss embraces the beauty of personal histories in her work, focusing on elements of memory, intimacy and metamorphosis.

Her short stories have been published in The New Yorker, Harper’s, Esquire, and Best American Short Stories and her books have been translated into more than thirty-five languages.
