Barbara Kingsolver

Interview

Friday, December 04, 2009

The Lacuna marks Barbara Kingsolver's first novel in nearly a decade. It's an epic tale that spans decades of vivid history from 1930s Mexico City to the McCarthy-era U.S. She peppers the narrative with real historical figures including Diego Rivera, Frida Kahlo, and J. Edgar Hoover. She tells Kurt, "The most important part of the story is the part you don't know yet."
