Book Nook: Azimuths, by R.A. Morean
This surreal novel is set in a trailer park in the Mojave Desert. The author, R.A. Morean, is quite familiar with this locale. She used to live in the area. This is one of the most otherworldly and bizarre books that I have read in a long time. It defies genre. Fortunately I was able to interview the author about it and her insights and confessions really helped me to understand the story more clearly.
This book took a really long time to complete. In this interview Morean describes her journey as a writer. She has had a lot of projects in the pipeline and suddenly they are bursting forth like geysers. The writing life is truly unlike anything else.
The Book Nook on WYSO is made possible by five local library systems in southwest Ohio: the Greene County Public Library, Washington-Centerville Public Library, MidPointe Library System, Clark County Public Library and the Dayton Metro Library.
