Peter Behrens and a great summer read

Behrens (c) Ryan Goodrich.jpgIf you were trying to describe Peter Behrens' latest novel, you would use words like "sweeping" and "epic". "The O'Briens" takes us from 1887 to 1960, and across North America and back. It continues the saga of the family that Peter Behrens brought to life in his first novel, "The Law of Dreams".

Peter Behrens lives in Maine with his wife and young son. But he was born in Montreal so we can claim him as our own.

Elizabeth spoke to him when he came through town. We didn't have time to play the full interview on the show so we've posted it here for your listening pleasure!
