Yet equally powerful are her imaginative recreations of life in Ireland in the s, the experience of crossing the Atlantic in a tiny cabin, and most harrowing of all, what it was like to give birth in St. The gardens and landscape around the convent lack life, and the rewards and difficulties of life as a nun are sketched rather than interrogated.

As a result, Theresa, always a secondary focus and always drawn more idealistically, gets bleached out. Admirers of J.

Nora provided a wonderful chance to see through the eyes of the other, one of my favorite parts of writing fiction. Everything that I regard as positive about our particular historical moment—increased openness and self-expression, for example—is to her a terrifying threat. I really enjoyed exploring how she came to be that way. What was the biggest challenge you encountered while writing Saints for All Occasions?

Her sister, the nun, was coming back to bury her after a long estrangement. After two years, I realized why—there was no payoff if Nora was dead and no longer there to answer for her choices. The most interesting part of those drafts, I thought, was the death of her son years earlier, which was seen only in flashbacks. What themes were you most interested in exploring? Writers tend to return again and again to certain obsessions. One of mine has always been how different people in a group can experience the same events in totally different ways.

Another is the idea that the moment a woman is born will determine so much of who she is allowed to become. Religion is also a theme—how, in ways good and bad, Catholicism shapes the lives of the people in one family, especially when it comes to sexuality. As a novelist and a feminist , how are you dealing with the political climate right now?

Will it influence your future work? Among other things, at a time when facts are apparently up for debate, it feels essential to write about the world as we see it, and the legacy of our shared past. That is a reflection of our world.

Saints and Seasons

I want to read and write novels that embrace the realities of race, gender, social class, and disability. Books about families complicated by difference. Writing stories can feel frivolous at a moment like this.
