Compared by critics to Kafka and Joyce, H. G. Adler is quickly gaining recognition as a key figure in 20th-century fiction. A panel of writers and journalists comes together to discuss Adler's unique "dual" perspective on the events of the Holocaust, as author of both The Wall – a fictional account of his own survival – and of Theresienstadt 1941–1945: The Face of a Coerced Community – an academic examination of the same event to be published in a new translation in October 2015.
Co-presented with the PEN World Voices Festival of International Literature
