Téa Obreht presents Inland
In conversation with Marie-Helene Bertino
Téa Obreht, author of the National Book Award finalist and international, million-copy bestseller The Tiger’s Wife, returns with Inland—an epic journey across an unforgettable landscape, a stunning tale of perseverance and family, and a love letter to the complicated and glorious American West. In the lawless, drought-ridden lands of the Arizona Territory in 1893, two extraordinary lives collide: those of unflinching frontierswoman Nora and of immigrant and former outlaw Lurie. The way in which Nora’s and Lurie’s stories intertwine is the surprise and suspense of this brilliant novel. Joining Obreht in conversation is Marie-Helene Bertino, the award-winning author of the novel 2 A.M. at the Cat's Pajamas and the collection Safe as Houses.
