A Place Called Home

Three writers whose acute sense of place is often sharpened by reflections about home—whether one they’ve left, one they’ve found (sometimes on the way to somewhere else), or ones their writing has brought to life for themselves. A conversation with Rachel Kushner (The Hard Crowd), Jerald Walker (How to Make a Slave and Other Essays), and Aminatta Forna (The Window Seat). Moderated by Merve Emre, Professor of English at the University of Oxford, critic, and editor of The Annotated Mrs. Dalloway.
