‘I’ve written just about everything except greeting cards,’ quips bestselling New York novelist A.M. Homes, in conversation with Toni Jordan at the Wheeler Centre. ‘I’m looking forward to writing those.’
Homes' latest book, May We Be Forgiven, has been talked about as an example of the mythical Great American Novel – that synthesis of ideas about politics, history and the way we live now, woven into the lives of the characters who tell the story.
In this interview, she talks about the American dream, the difficulty of hope, and the serious utility of humour.
