Colum McCann, Bestselling Author Presented by Pittsburgh Arts & Lectures

Uploaded by pghlectures
Internationally bestselling author Colum McCann returns with his most ambitious novel to date, Apeirogon, an epic story rooted in the real-life friendship between two men united by loss. Bassam Aramin is Palestinian. Rami Elhanan is Israeli. When Bassam and Rami learn of one another’s stories, they recognize the loss that connects them and they attempt to use their grief as a weapon for peace. McCann crafts Apeirogon out of a universe of fictional and non-fictional material. He crosses centuries and continents, stitching time, art, history, nature, and politics together in a tale both heartbreaking and hopeful.
