Shani Boianjiu in conversation with Sarah Manguso

The People of Forever Are Not Afraid is Shani Boianjiu's rites of passage novel about the dehumanising horror of warfare in a fragmented plot held together with a passionate, poetic eloquence. Set in northern Israel in a small town by the Lebanese border, the book's three main characters are conscripted into the army upon turning 18, and their previous, personal concerns are swiftly replaced by the brutal, political exigencies of warfare. Join Boianjiu for a discussion of The People of Forever Are not Afraid, a novel which depicts with depth and acuity the effect of fear on young minds. With Sarah Manguso, author of The Guardians, Two Kinds of Decay, and three collections of poetry.
