Answering the phone for this interview, a high-pitched, girlie voice chirps “Hi, how are you?” with genuine interest. Her novel speaks from the other side, from the silence of a happy life. After reading her first novel, Outside Valentine, I expected a measured, soft voice that would stretch around the ball of emptiness at the center of all that is human, a voice that arcs in stabbing, eloquent tones, speak...   [tags: Authors]
