Podcast - Lisa Howorth
Lisa Howorth is co-owner of Square Books in Oxford, MS, which was named Bookstore of the Year by Publisher's Weekly in 2013. However, in this interview, we'll be talking about her debut novel Flying Shoes, which is available from Bloomsbury. It's the story of Mary Bird Thornton, who in the winter of 1996 learns of new information about the murder of her step-brother some 30 years prior, all while having a really bad week. It's a raucous, affirming novel which proves that life goes on, even if we are haunted by loss.
