Chuckanut Radio Hour with Special Guest Chris Bohjalian, The Light in the Ruins
Our special guest for July's Chuckanut Radio Hour is New York Times bestselling author of The Sandcastle Girls, Chris Bohjalian, for his new book, The Light in the Ruins. This is a spine-tingling novel of love, desperation, and revenge, set in the World War II ravaged countryside of Italy. Bohjalian's newest has it all: a sun-drenched Italian villa, a doomed love affair, a fascinating slice of Italian history, and a serial killer hell-bent on revenge. Chris Bohjalian is the critically acclaimed author of sixteen books, including Skeletons at the Feast, The Double Bind, and Midwives. His novel Midwives was a number one New York Times bestseller and a selection of Oprah's Book Club. His work has been translated into more than twenty-five languages, and three of his novels have become movies (Secrets of Eden, Midwives, and Past the Bleachers). He lives in Vermont with his wife and daughter.
