Overview

Join us for this provocative panel on the cathartic power of discomfort.  With each new novel, Roth predictably delighted and shocked readers with his frank depictions of human frailty and immorality. No aspect of behavior was spared his withering critical eye – sex, gender, race and religion were all fair game. Roth’s willingness to wrestle with our worst impulses, and his ability to transform outrage into art, blew the doors off what was possible in fiction for a generation of writers and readers. Participants include novelists Ayad Akhtar, Susan Choi, Ottessa Moshfegh and Gary Shteyngart.
