There’s no pigeonholing novelist Stewart O’Nan or his books. They are, The New York Times said, “as remarkable for their precise, economical language and depth of characterization as for the fact that each is as different from its predecessor, in style, tone and narrative approach, as if it had come from a different author.”
O’Nan’s work spans from Snow Angels and Last Night at the Lobster to a nonfiction collaboration with Stephen King, Faithful: Two Diehard Boston Red Sox Fans Chronicle the Historic 2004 Season. In conjunction with his four-day stay as the Cockefair Writer in Residence at the University of Missouri-Kansas City, he discusses his craft and career in a conversation with Angela Elam of KCUR-FM’s New Letters on the Air.
