Chris Cleave, Everyone Brave is Forgiven

New York Times bestselling author Chris Cleave joins Elisa Jaffe to discuss Everyone Brave is Forgiven -  a perfect wartime love story inspired by the real-life love letters between Cleave’s grandparents. This dazzling novel dares us to understand that, against the great theater of world events, it is the intimate losses, the small battles, the daily human triumphs that change us most.
