Tell Me How This Ends Well: David Samuel Levinson & Dan Torday

David Samuel Levinson’s Tell Me How This Ends Well is a story set in 2022, in a world where America has descended into anti-Semitism and chaos. On Passover in Los Angeles, a patricidal plot begins brewing among the Jacobson family. Levinson tells the story of both this dysfunctional family and the possible dystopian fate of America. “Tell Me How This Ends Well is an absolute joyride through the dark, beautiful terrain of the near future,” says Rebecca Lee. “This is a book that is, arguably, about everything– about family and love and hatred and politics and the indomitable self, and Levinson tackles the whole thing with abundant intelligence, seriousness and humor, and convinces, once again, of the novel’s enduring power to grasp the future.” David Samuel Levinson is the Pushcart Prize-nominated author of the novel Antonia Lively Breaks the Silence and the story collection Most of Us Are Here Against Our Will. He will be joined by Daniel Torday, the author of New York Times Book Review Editor's Choice The Last Flight of Poxl West. His work has also appeared in The New York Times, NPR, n+1, The Paris Review Daily and Tin House, Best American Short Stories, and Best American Essays.
