Jim Van Buskirk leads a discussion of A Horse Walks into a Bar by David Grossman.

Winner of the 2017 Man Booker International Prize and National Jewish Book Award for Fiction, this caustic short novel explores the life of a stand-up comic, as revealed in the course of one evening’s performance. In the dance between comic and audience, with barbs flying back and forth, a deeper story begins to take shape.
