“I spend all day being other people,” Nathan Englander told NPR last year. The Brooklyn-based short story writer and novelist was a finalist for the 2012 Pulitzer Prize for his short story collection, What We Talk About When We Talk About Anne Frank with its celebrated title story in which two Jewish couples tentatively bond over pot, dance in the rain, and debate the lengths they’d go to protect their spouses in a second Holocaust. The collection went on to win the 2012 Frank O’Connor International Short Story Award, confirming the promise of his 1999 debut, For the Relief of Unbearable Urges which scored a PEN/Malamud Award and the Sue Kaufman Prize for First Fiction. Englander changed direction last year with his second novel (now out in paperback), the political thriller, Dinner at the Center of the Earth, in which a Mossad recruit flips for the other side.
