The Writing Life

This month, Kristin Henderson hosts Siobhan Fallon.  In this debut edition of HoCoPoLitSo's The Writing Life, journalist Kristin Henderson hosts Siobhan Fallon, author of You Know When the Men Are Gone, a collection of linked short stories about military families. To begin their conversation Fallon reads from “Gold Star,” the last story in the collection, about a family recovering from the death of their soldier overseas. Henderson and Fallon, both military wives, talk about the terror of losing their spouses in war, and the difficulty of writing that “nightmare”: “It was sort of a leap, but I had unfortunately, had been to funerals,” Fallon said. “I think writers have to take on more than they think they can handle, just in order to get it on the page.”
