Amy Waldman on The Submission

Tuesday, August 16, 2011

Amy Waldman discusses her new novel, The Submission . It tells the story of a jury in Manhattan called to select a memorial design for the victims of a devastating terrorist attack. When the jurors open the envelope containing the anonymous winner’s name, they discover he is an American Muslim. Their choice casts them into roiling debate about grief, art, Islam, and how to remember, and understand, a national tragedy.
