A Riveting Read: Emmaus by Alessandro Baricco

August 12 2013

EmmausThis week on Switchback, Associate Fiction Editor Erin Berman reads and reviews Emmaus by Alessandro Baricco, just out this summer from McSweeney's Books! "If anything, this book is about questioning faith, though Baricco does not try to discern between good and evil. Instead, the resounding note at the end of the novel suggests that life is far more immaterial and impermanent than we realize."
