In conversation with Jason Roberts

Peter Orner talks about his novel Love and Shame and Love ($14.99). Covering four generations of one family, Orner illuminates the countless ways that love both makes us whole and completely unravels us. A comic and sorrowful tapestry of memory, of connection and disconnection, this work explores the universals with originality and wisdom.

Jason Roberts is author of the bestselling A Sense of the World: How a Blind Man Became History's Greatest Traveler, a biography of James Holman, the blind adventurer of the early 19th century.
