What We Talk About When We Talk About Anne Frank Overview

In Nathan Englander’s short story, What We Talk About When We Talk About Anne Frank, an unnamed narrator recounts in first-person the events of an afternoon that he spends with his wife, a high school friend she recently reconnected with, and that friend’s husband. While drinking vodka and smoking pot, the two couples discuss Judaism, the Holocaust, relationships, family, and identity. This funny, moving story depicts the subtle complexities of how we see ourselves and others—and how bias, hypocrisy, and inflexibility can affect even the deepest of our bonds.
