I had a great conversation with Diana Arterian about the origin and evolution of Great Divide. She asked great questions that made me think about the book from new angles, and I made some jokes. Read it here!
Great Divide is a novel about memory, the power of the past to shape and subsume the present, and the pressing, terrible need to escape the drowning force of history.

"One day my grandfather was out driving. This was after the war, after my grandparents were married and living in Pennsylvania with my aunt Sarah, before my father was born. As he was driving, he became sure that he had hit something back along the road behind him, so he turned around to check."
