Christian Kiefer is the author of two critically-acclaimed novels. “The Infinite Tides” (2012, Bloomsbury) made the Best of the Year list of the Publisher’s Weekly and his most recent novel, “The Animals” (2015 Liveright), has been named A Best Book of the Year by Amazon.com. Kiefer’s creative nature has also resulted in short stories, poetry, and making recordings and touring with a band. In this presentation, he reads from “The Animals” and explains that part of the impetus for the book was “exploring the kind of thinking that puts you in a situation where catastrophically poor decisions seem perfectly reasonable.” After reading, Kiefer answers questions from his student audience and shares ideas about writing.
