The Submission: The Slate Audio Book Club

latest production... enjoy
In this month's Audio Book Club, Yale art historian and architect Kishwar Rizvi joins Emily Bazelon and Hanna Rosin to talk about Amy Waldman's masterfully constructed novel about the legacy of 9/11. The book opens with this surprise: The jury that is selecting a design for a 9/11 memorial at Ground Zero opens the envelope with the winning architect's name—and discovers that he is Mohammed Khan, a Muslim. How deep does Waldman go with her ripped-from-the-headlines premise? Is Khan's garden design for the memorial inherently Islamic? What obligation does an artist commissioned for such a project have to explain the source of his inspiration?
