I’ll Be Reading from My New Novel

A Peek Inside: The Process of Novel Writing with Miriam Sagan
2-3 p.m., April 12 online
Miriam Sagan will read from her new novel Shadow on the Minotaur (Red Mountain Press, 2021) and discuss sources of inspiration, structural challenges, and getting inside a character’s head. The heroine of the book, Thea, has survived the war in Bosnia only to find herself isolated and unable to cross the street in Brooklyn. Also, her shadow is missing.
A cast of diverse characters helps in her healing–a mystic rabbi, a surfer acupuncturist, a professor turned curandera. The novel asks the question–how do we recover from trauma? It also has a good cake recipe.

The last–complicated–revision was done at the start of the pandemic. My life gave me insight in to what it is like to be trapped–making the process both easier and more difficult at the same time!

  1. Looking forward to hearing your process! I’ve got an unfinished novel from my 2015 NANOWRIMO (and before and after) and the main character is a survivor of the Bosnian war. Interesting how that part of the world pulls at us.
