10:00 AM - 11:30 AMZoom

Remarkable debut novel, written with the fearless imagination of Michael Chabon and the piercing humor of Gary Shteyngart, about a small Jewish village in the Polish forest that is so secluded no one knows it exists . . . until now. For decades, the tiny Jewish shtetl existed in happy isolation, virtually untouched and unchanged, spared by the Holocaust and the Cold War, its residents enjoyed remarkable peace. It missed out on cars, electricity, the internet and indoor plumbing. But when a marriage dispute spins out of control, the whole town comes crashing into the twenty-first century.
