We’ve rounded up some of the best of what our authors have been doing, reading, and thinking this week.
From ’70s pop-soaked afternoons to naked flights on the trapeze, Stephen Jarvis shares the singularly unusual genesis of his vast, richly imagined, Dickensian debut, Death and Mr. Pickwick.

It’s a blisteringly funny, ferociously intelligent, and deeply moving novel of self-discovery. Here she talks to us about California’s Central Valley, the deadly Valley Fever, and accepting where you’re from.
