Author of Affliction and The Sweet Hereafter, Russell Banks' new novel takes breathtaking risks in exploring a morally complex story. The protagonist is a renegade and convicted sex offender searching for freedom, including freedom from homelessness. Our conversation centers on how he entered the "forbidden zone" and structured this unconventional novel.
