About the Event
Set in the roaring 1920s of new money, aristocrats, and Wall Street Tycoons, Trust tells the multilayered and ever-shifting story of Benjamin and Helen Rask. At once an immersive tale and a brilliant literary puzzle, Diaz engages the reader in a quest for the truth while confronting the deceptions that often live at the heart of personal relationships, the reality-warping force of capital, and the ease with which power can manipulate facts.
Hernan Diaz’s first novel, In the Distance, was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize and the PEN/Faulkner Award. He has also written a book of essays, and his work has appeared in The Paris Review, Granta, Playboy, The Yale Review, McSweeney’s, and elsewhere. He has received a Guggenheim Fellowship, a Whiting Award, the William Saroyan International Prize for Writing, and a fellowship from the New York Public Library’s Cullman Center for Scholars and Writers.
