Distant Fathers, Distant Stars

Remote and enigmatic father figures exert powerful gravitational pulls in the new novels by Norwegian author Karl Ove Knausgård (The Wolves of Eternity, translated by Martin Aitken) and Zimbabwean Novuyo Rosa Tshuma (Digging Stars). What mysteries are contained in the lives of these men—and how do the stars and solar system provide a key to understanding them? A conversation about fatherhood and cosmic riddles of existence; moderated by Anderson Tepper, curator of international literature at City of Asylum in Pittsburgh.
