Vendela Vida: The Lovers
Listen to/Watch entire show:
The Lovers (Harper Collins/ Ecco)
Vendela Vida has crafted another mysterious and beautiful novel about a woman's identity, but this woman, Yvonne, is middle-aged, the oldest woman whose tightly-knit personality Vida has unraveled so far. We explore the ways the novel is constructed so that the author will continue to be surprised (as will the reader). It's a method that requires a good deal of confidence and trust that a character's spiritual journey will reach its destination.
