Discussion of  The World to Come by Dara Horn 

A million-dollar painting by Marc Chagall is stolen from a museum. The unlikely thief is Benjamin Ziskind, a thirty-year-old quiz-show writer. As Benjamin and his twin sister try to evade the police, they find themselves recalling their dead parents — the father who lost a leg in Vietnam, the mother who created children's books — and their stories about trust, loss, and betrayal.

With astonishing grace and simplicity, Dara Horn interweaves a real art heist, history, biography, theology and Yiddish literature. Richly satisfying, utterly unique, her novel opens the door to "the world to come"—not life after death, but the world we create through our actions right now.
