Brutally Honest: Real-World Destruction in Literature

  • Brooklyn Law School Student Lounge 250 Joralemon Street Brooklyn, NY 11201 (map)

Fiction has increasingly become an outlet for writers worldwide to work through cultural pain, and to search for insight into the traumatic events that saturate media headlines.  Jonathan Lee(High Dive) infuses a historic bomb plot in Thatcher’s England with new life, empathy, and interest; Karan Mahajan (The Association of Small Bombs) dissects the long term effects of terrorism on both the victims and the perpetrators; and Sharon Millar (The Whale House) tackles class divides and social tumult in modern day Trinidad. Moderated by Anna North, (The Life and Death of Sophie Stark).
