'What We Talk About When We Talk About Anne Frank'

Author Nathan Englander certainly knows how to grab your attention with a book title – he’s with us in the studio as his latest, highly acclaimed short story collection is published in France. It’s a patchwork of tales of ordinary people - from an Ultra Orthodox couple living in East Jerusalem and West Bank settlers, to Long Island schoolchildren and a holiday camp for American seniors.

What they all have in common is their Jewishness. Nathan tells us where he gets his inspiration and why he doesn’t want to be classified as simply a "Jewish writer."
