Colum McCann, whose latest novel is Apeirogon, in conversation with host Richard Wolinsky. This is the story of two men, Rami Elhanan, an Israeli, and Bassam Aramin, a Palestinian, best of friends, who have been traveling the world attempting to bring about peace in Israel and the Occupied Territories. Apeirogon is only tangentially a novel. These are real people and this reads more like augmented non-fiction. Colum McCann is the National Book Award winning author of “Let the Great World Spin,” “Zoli,” “Thirteen Ways of Looking” and other books. Special thanks to Richard Lavin for post-production assistance.
