The Joy Gottesman Ungerleider Lecture
LIVE welcomes back George Prochnik, author of The Impossible Exile. This new book studies the life and work of Stefan Zweig, an icon of the Viennese cultural renaissance.
George Prochnik’s essays, poetry, and fiction have appeared in numerous journals. He taught English and American literature at Hebrew University in Jerusalem, is editor-at-large for Cabinet magazine, and is the author of In Pursuit of Silence: Listening for Meaning in a World of Noise and Putnam Camp: Sigmund Freud, James Jackson Putnam, and the Purpose of American Psychology. He lives in New York City.
The annual Joy Gottesman Ungerleider Lecture has been made possible by a generous grant from the Dorot Foundation.
