David Bezmozgis on The Free World

Monday, April 04, 2011

David Bezmozgis discusses his debut novel, The Free World, a multigenerational saga about a family that flees the Soviet Union in 1978. Among the thousands who have landed in Italy to secure visas for new lives in the West are three generations of the Krasnansky family, who will spend six months in Rome in the carnival of emigration, preparing for a new life.

My first impression is that Mr. Bezmozgis would be a valuable participant in the "What is freedom?" discussion that happened this morning on Mr. Lehrer's show.
I expect he would provide an antidote to Mr. Barber's over intellectualized obfuscation of the experience of freedom.

Maybe Mr. Lehrer can invite him to comment on the upcoming discussion of that topic on April 7th?

Lenny should really rename his show. A huge percentage of his shows are based on this very subject matter. I know more about Jewish people, the Holocaust and Israel from this show than anything else.
