Dara Horn, Author of Eternal Life

Dara Horn, an outstanding voice in America today, is coming back to our community by popular demand!
 
She will be focusing on her newest novel Eternal Life. Rachel, the main character, is a woman with a problem: she can’t die. After making a spiritual bargain in Jerusalem 2000 years ago to save her first child’s life, Rachel has survived many centuries, scores of marriages, and hundreds of children. However, is her eternal life a blessing or a curse?
 
Dara received her PhD in comparative literature from Harvard University and was chosen by Granta magazine as one of the best young American novelists in 2007. Her first novel, In the Image, received a National Jewish Book Award. Dara’s other awardwinning novels are: The World to Come, All Other Nights, and A Guide for the Perplexed.
Dara has taught courses in Hebrew and Yiddish literature at Harvard University, Sarah Lawrence College, and City University of New York. She lives in New Jersey with her husband and four children.
 
“The chilling pathos of Dara Horn’s Eternal Life is bound to turn every mortal reader into a philosopher of cosmic joy.” – Cynthia Ozick, author of Foreign Bodies
