Julie Orringer (The Invisible Bridge) joins Michael Chabon (Moonglow) for a conversation about The Flight Portfolio, Orringer’s new historical novel set in occupied Europe and based on the true story of American journalist Varian Fry’s extraordinary rescue of Jewish artists and writers threatened by the Nazis including Hannah Arendt, Max Ernst, Marcel Duchamp and Marc Chagall.

“No book this year could possibly compare with The Flight Portfolio: ambitious, meticulous, big-hearted, gorgeous, historical, suspenseful, everything you want a novel to be.”
– Andrew Sean Greer, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of Less
