Binah: Francine Prose’s The Vixen

Francine Prose - The Vixen.jpg

Author Francine Prose turns the story of the trial and execution of Ethel and Julius Rosenberg into an improbably funny examination of distortions in the fictionalizing of history.

Prose’s latest, historical fiction novel is The Vixen.

She is joined in conversation by Holly Firfer.

David Kwan is the editor and producer of Binah, featuring remarkable artists and thinkers who’ve come to speak at the Jewish Community Center of San Francisco as part of their Arts & Ideas program.
