Goodreads asked David W. Gordon:

Where did you get the idea for your most recent book?

David W. Gordon When my father was a child, his dad got on a bus one day and never came back. That story became sort of the white whale of our family, and we all wondered about the reasons why the man decided to abandon his family. I took that one true thing and asked myself, "What if it isn't true? What if it was a cover story for something much worse?" With that in mind came the story of The Outhouse.
