MUSEUM RECOMMENDATION
An Evening With Martin Amis

Wednesday, Oct 29, 2014 | 6pm

Martin Amis discusses his latest book, Zone of Interest. The sordid brutality of the Holocaust is starkly drawn in Amis’ portrayal of the everyday lives of officers of the Third Reich—a haunting and powerfully told story of breached morality, intimacies, betrayals and defiance. Martin Amis has been listed for the Booker Prize twice (Time's Arrow and Yellow Dog).
