Susan Choi presents Trust Exercise
In conversation with Jennifer Egan
Greenlight welcomes our Brooklyn neighbor, Pulitzer Prize finalist Susan Choi, to present Trust Exercise, her new narrative-upending novel about what happens when a first love between high school students is interrupted by the attentions of a charismatic teacher. The novel features a startling shift in viewpoints that allows the reader to witness the same story from an angle that is so different that what is relearned is thrilling and dumbfounding. As captivating and tender as it is surprising, Trust Exercise will incite heated conversations about fiction and truth, friendships and loyalties, and will leave listeners with wiser understandings of the true capacities of adolescents and of the powers and responsibilities of adults. Choi presents her book in conversation with fellow Greenlight friend and neighbor Jennifer Egan, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of Manhattan Beach and A Visit from the Goon Squad.
