Jenny Erpenbeck in conversation with Claire Messud

In partnership with Brookline Booksmith, Jenny Erpenbeck will discuss her most recent novel Go, Went, Gone with Claire Messud.

Go, Went, Gone tells the tale of Richard, a retired classics professor who lives in Berlin. His wife has died, and he lives a routine existence until one day he spies some African refugees staging a hunger strike in Alexanderplatz. Curiosity turns into compassion and an inner transformation as he visits their shelter, interviews them, and becomes embroiled in their harrowing fates.
