WEDNESDAY: Nathan Englander at the Booksmith

We’ve had our eye on writer-on-the-verge NATHAN ENGLANDER since devouring his debut short-story collection, For the Relief of Unbearable Urges (click for an excerpt). Englander, a former Orthodox Jew, travels from Jerusalem to read and sign copies of his first novel, The Ministry of Special Cases, in which he weaves humor and desolation into a story of fathers and sons during Argentina’s Dirty War. To suffer is to be blessed at the Brookline Booksmith, 279 Harvard St, Boston | 7 pm | free | 617.566.6660.
