The Elegance of the Hedgehog: Muriel Barbery in Conversation with Adam Gopnik
April 30, 2009 | NYU | NYC
Muriel Barbery is the author of the award-winning international best-seller The Elegance of the Hedgehog, a novel that The Washington Post called “exceptionally winning.” Barbery is joined by The New Yorker magazine’s Adam Gopnik for a discussion about the mysteries of childhood, the novel as philosophical fable, and why one Parisian psychotherapist is prescribing Muriel’s novel to her patients.
