ERIC BOGOSIAN talks to me about memory, identity and reinvention

May 13th, 2009

David Brooks recently wrote about a 60 year longitudinal study launched at Harvard in 1944. The same study and it's search for the holy grail of "happiness" was also the basis of a story in current Atlantic. The idea that we change as we age, that we lead many lives, that memory both plays tricks on us and defines us, is also a core idea behind Eric Bogosian's new novel PERFORATED HEART. It's the story of two men who inhabit one individual at home in both the landscape of '70 New York and the more staid and grown up world of 2007.
