Molly Antopol, a 2013 National Book Foundation "5 Under 35" honoree, offers a stunning exploration of characters shaped by the forces of history with her debut work of fiction The UnAmericans, selected by Greenlight as a 2014 First Editions Club pick. Exiled dissidents and absentee fathers, difficult grandmothers and Jewish Underground fighters, uncomfortable heroes and estranged family members speak in voices both intimate and powerful. Again and again, Molly Antopol’s deeply sympathetic characters struggle for footing in an uncertain world, hounded by forces beyond their control. Praised by fellow authors including Adam Johnson, Joan Silber, Jesmyn Ward, Ken Kalfus and others, The UnAmericans launches a new writer to watch. Antopol will discuss her work at Greenlight with fellow young writer Justin Torres, author of the acclaimed novel We The Animals.
