Although Hernan Diaz’s latest novel is titled Trust, the nature of trust in this novel isn’t so simple. Told through 4 documents, Trust is really 4 books in one, each examining a different perspective of the richest man in 1920s America.

With each document, the reader comes to a greater understanding about the nature of wealth and the role it played in one man’s life. I spoke with Hernan Diaz about each document, his literary style, and more. Here's our conversation.


Trust by Hernan Diaz was published by Riverhead Books.
