n Nathan Englander’s latest novel, when Larry’s father dies, he turns to the website kaddish.com for help reciting the Jewish prayer for the dead. The celebrated Pulitzer finalist and prize-winning author of Dinner at the Center of the Earth, What We Talk About When We Talk About Anne Frank etc. talks with novelist Julie Orringer (The Flight Portfolio) about his satirical tale of atonement, spiritual redemption, and the temptations of the internet.

“Englander is mischievously hilarious, nightmarish, suspenseful, inquisitive, and deliriously tender in this concentrated tale of tradition and improvisation, faith and love.”—Booklist
