What do computerized data storage, sibling rivalry, Maimonides and Egyptian uncertainty after the Arab Spring have in common? They’re all part of A Guide for the Perplexed, novelist Dara Horn’s latest work, about memory and love. One of Granta’s Best Young American Novelists and the winner of two National Jewish Book Awards, Horn is best known for The World To Come and All Other Nights.
"Deeply sympathetic characters, an encyclopedic grasp of 20th-century history and a spiritual sense that sees through the conventional barriers between this life and the one to come – or the one before."
