Likewise, if I wake up in the middle of the night, I typically think about whatever book I'm reading to help me fall back to sleep. While writing Tornadoes, if I didn't immediately know how Cath would respond to a Scott letter, I would think about the characters and the book when I woke up in the middle of the night. If I managed to puzzle through whatever problem I was having with what to write next, I'd jump out of bed to jot down some notes. Also, sometimes I would talk to my daughters about what was happening with the characters. They were roughly the age of Scott and Cath during the writing process, and once and a while they helped me see how a teenage girl might react to whatever Scott had recently written.(less)

3.5 rating. So many beautifully written and extremely dense sentences that it was difficult to see the forest for the trees. I was really amazed by the writing at first, but it grew a bit tiresome and oftentimes felt like there was no central plot mo ...more
Mercury Pictures Presents by Anthony Marra
"This one was a struggle for me. Too many story lines populated with too many characters and a slow moving plot just left me flat. The author is definitely a gifted writer with much of his prose flowing like poetry and interspersed with humorous lines" Read more of this review »
