Brooklyn Book Festival: The Wisdom of the Mundane with Osama Alomar and Rivka Galchen

Karl Ove Knausgaard (Autumn), Osama Alomar (The Teeth of the Comb), and Jana Beňová (Seeing People Off) are masters of observation and sharp insight. In their hands, inanimate objects, personified animals, and everyday occurrences are given the majesty of prophecy. Like meeting an oracle in a dream, their fictions make us see our reality anew. Moderated by Rivka Galchen (Little Labors).
