Interview with Minrose Gwin

GWIN, Minrose 297X297

Minrose Gwin

“…The Accidentals tracks a half century in the lives of its characters, from Laika’s ill-fated flight in 1957 to the first election of Barack Obama. When you cover that amount of time, you need historical touchstones to ground the developments in the novel. Each important personal moment in the book is accompanied by a historical event: the murder of Emmett Till; the Russians putting little Laika into orbit; the Cuban missile crisis; the day the first man walked on the moon; the explosion of Challenger; the Obama election, and so on. Each of these events punctuates the characters’ struggles.”
