Highlight

Linda Grant & Rachel Lichtenstein

“Jews live in time, not space…we have, and are, a story, not a plot of territory”. So says Linda Grant’s character Jossel in The Story of the Forest. From Latvia to Liverpool and post-war Soho, she tells the story, based in part on her own family’s experiences, of one Jewish family through the tumultuous 20th century. The tale she weaves is about myths, memory and how we adapt in order to survive. Place, memory and Jewish identity are also at the heart of Rachel Lichenstein’s art; the curator and Estuary author joins the multi-award-winning novelist in conversation with TLS fiction and politics editor Toby Lichtig.
