Beverly Gologorsky on the reissue of Things We Do To Make It Home at More.com

November 11, 2009

From More.com‘s piece by Beverly Gologorsky on the re-release of her debut novel, Things We Do To Make It Home, ten years after its initial publication:

. . . When that book was first published in 1999, I was ecstatic. My first thought when I had the novel in hand was: However this book finds its way in the world, I have given these women voice. But when the book was reissued, I couldn’t help wondering if I would still like it. If I didn’t, would confidence in the work I was doing be shattered? Human beings are made of chemicals and water; writers, however, are filled with doubt at any time of day or night, including in our dreams.

. . . The saga here is not tragic. In fact, let me speak of wonderful. I finally opened the reissued novel, and read through it in two sittings, both enchanted and amazed at the people who walked across each page. So, yes, I am busy promoting the old book; and yes, I haven’t time just now to write the new one. But I am so glad to have this old friend out there in the world again.
