Tea Obreht talked to The Book Page about her peripatetic childhood (Yugoslavia, Egypt, Atlanta), her life in Ithaca, New York, and why she hasn't moved to the Big Apple. Obreht also discusses her writing process--and how TC Boyle helped her overcome writer's block.
The interview is here. The Tiger's Wife will be published March 8. Obreht will read from the book at M&Q on March 14.--David E
