Jennifer Gilmore spoke about her book, The Mothers, at Politics & Prose on Tuesday, April 16, 2013. In this interview, Gilmore speaks about her own experiences with adoption, and the affect it had on her novel.

The third novel by the author of Golden Country and Something Red takes a close look at adoption—and finds it emotionally harrowing territory. Jesse and Ramon, a stable, married, heterosexual couple, would seem to be ideal prospective parents, yet their efforts to find a child are met with disappointment, deception, and red tape.

In the near future of Rich’s second novel, disaster is big business. The author of The Mayor’s Tongue follows the career of Mitchell Zukor, a mathematician hired to calculate worst-case scenarios—then sell the information to companies so they can indemnify themselves against catastrophes. Despite the planning, there’s still room for unexpected events, both in Zukor’s life and in this new culture of fear.

In Havana in 2003 the cry, “Fidel has fallen!” seemingly announces a second revolution. But though the fall at the center of Huergo’s first novel is that of a young man, Fidel Pérez, the event shakes up several people who witness it. As the characters recall the past and try to anticipate the future, their stories intertwine for a haunting portrait of Cuba.
