The UnAmericans (W. W. Norton), a stunning exploration of characters shaped by the forces of history, is the debut work of fiction by Molly Antopol, a 2013 National Book Foundation "5 Under 35" Honoree. An absentee father, a former dissident from communist-era Prague, needles his adult daughter for details about her newly commissioned play when he fears it will cast him in an unflattering light. An Israeli soldier, forced to defend a settlement filled with American religious families, still pines for a chance to discover the United States for himself. Again and again, Molly Antopol's deeply sympathetic characters struggle for footing in an uncertain world, hounded by forces beyond their control. Antopol is a superb young talent, and her debut story collection, The UnAmericans, will long be remembered for its wit, humanity, and heart. Antopol will be joined in conversation by Amanda Coplin, author of The Orchardist.
