Aminatta Forna in conversation with Anthony Swofford

In Aminatta Forna's new novel, The Hired Man, an English woman moves to the Croatian town of Gost, a place ravaged by the Yugoslav wars of the 1990s, in order to renovate an old house. A taut, crisply rendered story about one community's memories of civil war--and an examination of the kind of ghosts those with no experience of war are unable to see. Forna will be joined in conversation by Anthony Swofford, author of Jarhead.
