Monday, April 02, 2012

Lionel Shriver discusses her new novel, The New Republic, about a disgruntled New York corporate lawyer who becomes a foreign correspondent in a Portuguese province where a homegrown terrorist movement has sprung up. He thinks he is replacing the larger-than-life reporter he longs to emulate, who has disappeared, but all is not as it seems when the terrorist incidents dry up after that reporter’s disappearance.
