VIDEO: Helene Wecker & Andrew Sean Greer in conversation
Quickly, before my Best of 2013 Week is over, I wanted to share something very cool I've been hanging on to since the fall.
Yes, I know that everyone is sick of me promoting Helene Wecker's debut novel, The Golem and the Jinni, and Andrew Sean Greer's latest, The Impossible Lives of Greta Wells. I can't help it. They were my two favorite novels of the 225 I read last year.
And by a staggering coincidence, the two of them were teamed up for a Litquake event last October at San Francisco's Contemporary Jewish Museum. The video quality is mediocre, but the conversation between these two is fascinating, substantive, and completely charming! I'm so happy to share it with you.
