Ep: 164 Carol Lefevre/Bookoccino/Pamela Freeman

In this week’s episode, I talk to Carol LeFevre about her new novella Murmurations. https://www.carollefevre.com/

Lives merge and diverge; they soar and plunge, or come to rest in impenetrable silence. Erris Cleary’s absence haunts the pages of this exquisite novella, a woman who complicates other lives yet confers unexpected blessings. Fly far, be free, urges Erris. Who can know why she smashes mirrors? Who can say why she does not heed her own advice?

Among the sudden shifts and swings something hidden must be uncovered, something dark and rotten, even evil, which has masqueraded as normality. In the end, it will be a writer’s task to reclaim Erris, to bear witness, to sound in fiction the one true note that will crack the silence.
