C.M. Mayo Interviews Solveig Eggerz
As part of the series of occasional conversations with other writers, TWC workshop leader C.M. Mayo talks with Solveig Eggerz, TWC workshop leader and author of the fiercely poetic novel Seal Woman. Inspired by the Icelandic fairytale of the seal woman and the true story of some 300 German war widows brought to Iceland to marry and work on the remote farms, Seal Woman has been widely praised and translated into both Hebrew and Icelandic. The conversation ranges from the author's unusual background (from Iceland to England to Germany to Alexandria, Virginia), Iceland's book culture, fairytales, advice for writers, and more.
