Where did you get the idea for your most recent book?
Elizabeth Sumner Wafler
The idea for In Robin's Nest began with a documentary about my favorite band, The Eagles. The first time I watched The History of The Eagles on Showtime, I was riveted by concert footage from 1977, from the Hotel California tour in DC. A girl in the front row with Farrah Fawcett waves and wide-legged jeans was perched on her boyfriend’s shoulders, her face particularly luminous and arresting. She could have been me in the late seventies. I thought: Who is this woman today? What if she (now my age) is watching and unexpectedly sees herself immortalized on film at twenty-one? I began to daydream about her and what her story might have been. And ROBIN HAMILTON came to life.
