FSG Books and PEN American Center Present: A Conversation with Aleksandar Hemon and Colum McCann

"When Hemon’s work is funny, it can make you laugh in spite of everything, and when it is sad, it’s hard to stand up afterward.” —John Jeremiah Sullivan

 Aleksander Hemon will discuss his new memoir, a book of essays which record his various “lives.” In his first nonfiction work, Hemon tries to restore the memories of his youth and follow the threads that link his Bosnian past with his American present. Raw, questioning, and alive with compassion, The Book of My Lives is a portrait of a world lost to one of history’s darkest conflicts and that rarest of things: a necessary book by one of our most important writers. Hemon will be joined in conversation by Colum McCann, author of the acclaimed, Let The Great World Spin, and the forthcoming, Transatlantic.
