Susan Faludi with Angie Coiro

  • Kepler's Books 1010 El Camino Real Menlo Park, CA, 94025 United States (map)

Pulitzer Prize winner Susan Faludi has distinguished herself as one of the most influential feminist voices in America. Her newest book, "In the Darkroom", is a beautiful and riveting attempt to understand her inscrutable father  Jewish Holocaust survivor and Leni Riefenstahl fanatic, man and woman, and a sly fantasist whose tallest tales turn out to be true. The book, which traces the decimation of her fathers prosperous, assimilated Jewish clan during World WarII, his improbable survival and then reinvention in Denmark, Brazil and America, and his gender metamorphosis at 76, becomes a complex act of forgiveness.

She sits down with award-winning radio host Angie Coiro for a special evening edition of In Deep where they will share an hour-long conversation, covering Faludi's distinguished career, her unprecedented offering to modern feminism, and the revelations unfolded in her new memoir.
