Steve Toltz, Author of Quicksand
 
Steve Toltz, author of the new novel Quicksand joins us in a remarkably

revealing conversation about the inner life of a writer. Toltz speaks

openly about his ambivalence when his first novel, A Fraction of the

Whole, was short-listed for the Man Booker Prize in 2008. He walks us

through his process of developing the characters, settings and structure

of Quicksand which he intended to be as close to a complete opposite of

A Fraction of the Whole as he could manage. This is a 'must listen' for

all writers and those who love the art of writing.
