Be a passenger on one of the most thought-provoking journeys you’ll ever take, with a first-class wandering soul guiding the itinerary. Award-winning novelist Aminatta Forna (The Memory of Love; Happiness) is one of our most important and respected literary voices, holding up a mirror to the nuances, loneliness, and beauty of the human experience. Her new essay collection, The Window Seat, takes us from Sierra Leone to the Shetland Islands, from 1978 Iran to a grocery store in DC, all the while evoking vivid insights about displacement, trauma and memory, love, and how we coexist and encroach on the non-human world. Said The Washington Independent Review of Books, “It may just be the perfect post-pandemic read, and Forna the ideal post-pandemic writer.” Find out why with this far-ranging conversation that’ll leave you feeling anything but lost.
