Join us for an afternoon with Pulitzer Prize finalist and PEN/Faulkner Award winner Hernan Diaz. Diaz’s new book, Trust, opens to readers as a novel within a novel, entitled Bonds. Set during the roar of the 1920s, Wall Street tycoon Benjamin Rask and his wife, Helen, have risen to the top of the world of seemingly endless wealth – all as of a decade of excess and speculation draws to an end. But at what cost have they acquired their immense fortune?
Trust, longlisted for the 2022 Booker Prize, elegantly puts competing narratives into conversation with one another – and in tension with the perspective of one woman bend on disentangling fact from fiction. The result is a novel that spans over a century and becomes more exhilarating with each new revelation.
