Susanna Moore's The Life of Objects

Wednesday, November 21, 2012

Susanna Moore talks about her new novel, The Life of Objects. It’s about a 17-year-old Irish woman who joins the Berlin household of Felix and Dorothea Metzenburg. Art collectors, and friends to the most fascinating men and women in Europe, the Metzenburgs introduce Beatrice to a world in which she finds more to desire than she ever imagined. But the threat of Nazi terror, the deportation and murder of Jews, and the hordes of refugees fleeing the advancing Red Army cast a dark shadow.

When I finished hearing an interview like this, I was amazed by the above comment on her accent! Here is a full,articulate writer who has dug into troubling history, created characters that are part of it, and knows how to tell a story. Ive read four of her books; they are all lasting and powerful. Commenter from Yonkers, please listen to what says and read what she writes; forget the accent.

Was it my imagination or did this guest possess a very strange accent for someone who grew up in Hawaii?
