Forest Dark by Nicole Krauss, Out Sept. 12
Two very different storylines, both connected by Israel. Sixty-eight-year-old attorney Jules Epstein is giving away all of his possessions and traveling to Israel, where he plans to create a memorial to his parents. Meanwhile, a Brooklyn writer and mother is searching for her next subject and becomes fascinated by a story of a man falling from the balcony of a Tel Aviv hotel, the same hotel where she used to stay as a child. Forest Dark is a thoughtful and complex novel that will keep readers thinking.
