Hari Kunzru's brave and brutal thriller White Tears is part thriller, part literary horror novel.  Set in modern-day New York, it tracks the relationship between two young, white arts college graduates while exploring themes of race and privilege, music and audio memory, and cultural appropriation.

‘The reverberations of [this book] echo long after it's done. Part ghost story, part travelogue, White Tears is a drugged-out, spoiled-rotten treatise on race, class and poverty of the soul.’— TIME

The discussion will be led by Ava Seave, Adjunct Associate Professor at Columbia Journalism School and a member of the board of American Poetry Review.
