Teralyn Pilgrim Will we be able to watch the chat after it's over? I really really want to do it, but I don't know if I can because I'll be at work.

message 17: by Heather (new)

Heather How would you advise inspiring authors to come up with original idea's for a book?


Multialias Q: A lot of your novel is centered around this really fanciful folk lore in a very distinct place. Did you have to do a lot of research to come up with that or did it all come from stories you were told?


message 19: by Christine (new)

Christine Q What is your favorite book? Favorite author?


Rebekah q: is it okay to ask a spoiler question because my book group and I would love to know why the apothecary did what he did to the Tiger's wife. We couldn't figure out why he'd have a drastic change of heart/sensibility.

Kate Q: I saw a parellel between the tiger's wife and the granddaughter, but felt that the granddaughter for all the violence and potential for harm never received any. Can you elaborate on the intented similarities and differences between these characters?


Raina Q: How is the zoo a metaphor for war within The Tiger's Wife?


Elise How did you approach writing a novel vs short fiction? What surprised you about it? Was your writing process different? Any advice for getting through the first draft?

Raina Q: What was the purpose of leaving the tiger's wife pregnancy ambiguous in origin?


Raina How is cultural memory portrayed in regards to violence within the novel?


Kristyn The essay you wrote in The New Yorker over the summer mentioned that you wrote stories when you were young. How do you think that prepared you for serious writing? Also, how has your reading (in your youth and now) influenced your writing?


Kristyn What was it like being a student of T.C. Boyle?
