Yid Lit: Julie Orringer

In this week’s Yid Lit podcast, host Allison Gaudet Yarrow sits down with author Julie Orringer. Her new novel “The Invisible Bridge” serves as a reminder that in a field as crowded as artistic representations of the Holocaust there is always something new to say, so long as there are individual stories to tell. The narrative, a follow-up to her celebrated story collection, “How to Breathe Underwater” takes the Hungarian Shoah for its backdrop.
