Felicia Berliner & Susan Coll: A Conversation
Sunday, November 20, 2022 @ 11:00 am

Like the other women in her Brooklyn Hasidic community, Raizl expects to find a husband through an arranged marriage. But unlike other women, Raizl has a secret: She’s addicted to porn. Felicia Berliner‘s debut Shmutz: A Novel explores how Raizl, caught between traditional and modern worlds, tries to balance her growing understanding of her sexuality with the more conventional expectations of the family she loves. In Susan Coll‘s Bookish People, indie bookstore owner Sophie Bernstein is burned out on books. Renowned poet Raymond Chaucer, who some blame for his wife’s suicide, is getting canceled left and right because of it. And Clemi, Sophie’s events coordinator, wants to find out if Raymond is her biological father. This is a screwball comedy punctuated by political turmoil, a celestial event, and a perpetually broken vacuum cleaner.
