The Revisionist by Jesse Eisenberg
The Revisionist, by actor and New Yorker contributor Jesse Eisenberg, is a stunning exploration of obsession, secrets, and the nature of family. Young writer David arrives in Poland with a crippling case of writer’s block and a desire to be left alone. His seventy-five-year-old cousin Maria welcomes him with a fervent need to connect with her distant American family. As their relationship develops, she reveals details about her postwar past that test their ideas of what it means to be a family.
