      Crissy Van Meter in Conversation With Leni Zumas

      Evie grew up with her well-meaning but negligent father, surviving on the money he made dealing the island’s world-famous strain of weed, Winter Wonderland. Although her father raised her with a deep respect for the elements, the sea, and the creatures living within it, he also left her to parent herself. With wit, love, and bracing flashes of anger, Creatures (Algonquin) probes the complexities of love and abandonment, guilt and forgiveness, betrayal and grief – and the ways in which our childhoods can threaten our ability to love if we are not brave enough to conquer the past. Lyrical, darkly funny, and ultimately cathartic, Crissy Van Meter’s mesmerizing, provocative debut exerts a pull as strong as the tides. Van Meter will be joined in conversation by Leni Zumas, author of Red Clocks.
