AOT #148: Wally Lamb Podcasts The Hour I First Believed
Wally Lamb, whose first two novels, She’s Come Undone and I Know This Much Is True, were both national bestsellers, reads from and discusses The Hour I First Believed. In this new novel, Lamb travels well beyond his earlier work and embodies in his fiction myth, psychology, family history stretching back many generations, and the questions of faith that lie at the heart of everyday life. Dealing with the 1999 tragedy at Columbine High School, and a family history of long-buried fear, anger, guilt, and grief, The Hour I First Believed is an extraordinary tour de force, at once a meditation on the human condition and an unflinching yet compassionate evocation of character.
