Moriel Rothman-Zecher on Before All the World
Hosted By: The Jewish Book Council
Continuing our partnership with The Center for Fiction, Jewish Book Council is thrilled to welcome Dayton Literary Peace Prize and National Jewish Book Award finalist Moriel Rothman-Zecher to the stage for a conversation on his mesmerizing, inventive new novel, Before All the World.
In 1930s Philadelphia, three souls seize new life while haunted by the old. Nestled in this wild dream of a narrative are several love stories: two men of different countries and races who find comfort in each other; a man and a woman who spark each other’s lust through intellectual play; a woman and a boy who are the only survivors of their history; a man and the daughter he will never know. Rothman-Zecher explores the impossibility of escaping trauma, the necessity of believing in a better way ahead, and the power that comes from our responsibility to the future.
