Jennifer Egan: The Keep

Hosted by

the_keep.jpgThe Keep (Knopf)
Jennifer Egan researched classic Gothic fiction to develop a style that would deepen the terrors at the core of her new novel. The creaking conventions of the haunted-house story are overturned by the author's interest in unsolved mysteries.

You can read an excerpt from The Keep, and listen to an earlier interview with Egan about her 1996 book, Emerald City and Other Stories.
