The award-winning, New York Times bestselling author of The History of Love, conjures an achingly beautiful and breathtakingly original novel about personal transformation that interweaves the stories of two disparate individuals—an older lawyer and a young novelist—whose transcendental search leads them to the same Israeli desert

Jules Epstein, whose drive, avidity, and outsized personality have, for sixty-eight years, been a force to be reckoned with, has in the wake of his parents’ deaths, his divorce, and his retirement felt an irresistible need to give away his possessions. With the last of his wealth, he travels to Israel. Meanwhile a young, well-known novelist, leaving her family in Brooklyn, arrives at the Tel Aviv Hilton where she meets a retired literature professor who proposes a project she can’t turn down. Bursting with life and humor, Forest Dark is a profound, mesmerizing novel of metamorphosis and self-realization—of looking beyond all that is visible towards the infinite.

A book signing will follow the lecture. A selection of backlist titles and the author’s current book will be available for sale from Classic Lines.

Presented in Partnership with Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh.
