Arts & Letters Live: Claire Messud & Meg Wolitzer
Praised by the New York Times as “a writer of near-miraculous perfection," Claire Messud is the author of The Last Life, The Emperor’s Children (long-listed for the Man Booker Prize) and, most recently, The Woman Upstairs. Bookforum lauded this novel of passion and artistic fulfillment as “an extraordinary novel, a psychological suspense story that will leave you thinking about its implications for days afterward.”
Meg Wolitzer has been hailed by Entertainment Weekly as “among the greatest writers of her generation.” Her novels include The Ten-Year Nap, The Uncoupling, and The Interestings, which examines the meaning of talent, the nature of envy, the roles we play, and how all of it can shift and tilt precipitously over the course of a friendship and a life.
