Conversation: Jeffrey Eugenides & Daniel Kehlmann


Referring to Jeffrey Eugenides’s novel Middlesex, The New York Times Book Review said, “The book’s length feels like its author’s arms stretching farther and farther to encompass more people, more life…but mostly it is a colossal act of curiosity, of imagination, and of love.” Daniel Kehlmann’s Measuring the World was hailed as “ravishing” by the German paper Der Spiegel. Both authors’ books were runaway international best-sellers and today they come together, admirers of each other’s work, to talk about making fiction from fact and much more.
