Here’s something neat for Throwback Thursday, an interview Stewart did for The Talks back around when the German edition of The Odds was published. You can listen to snippets of the conversation, too. The lineup of interviews is stellar — in film, the likes of Alicia Vikander, Anthony Hopkins, and Antonio Banderas, and those are just the A’s! LeBron James, Mick Jagger, there’s no shortage of star power on this site.
Check out the in-depth article on Ocean State in Bostonia, Boston University’s Alumni Magazine!
“When I was in eighth grade my sister helped kill another girl.”
So begins Stewart O’Nan’s latest novel, Ocean State, a taut, deeply empathic exploration of a teenage love triangle with devastating consequences.
“In writing the book, I wanted to be able to convey the feeling of what it feels like to be headlong, wildly, in love and how wretched and destroyed you can feel from love,” says O’Nan (ENG’83). “It’s a love story, not a murder story or a thriller.”
Hoopla has chosen Ocean State as one of its summer 2022 selections!
It’ll all be crystal clear on 7/1/2022 for Ocean State! 😀
