You touch on some huge themes in your writing: home, family, culture, religion, water and betrayal. What would you like your reader to take away from this book?

My own favourite novels are both intimate and vast. They are about particular characters whose voices, experiences and destinies burrow into the mind and heart of the reader, but also open out into broader, more universal themes. That’s my hope for In Many Waters. The takeaway: No one is a stranger.
