Mary Dixie has an honors degree in English Literature from Harvard College and holds an MFA in Creative Writing from The New School. She lives in Brooklyn with her husband and two young children. Her first novel, The Photographer, has been called "an explosive debut” (Library Journal) and “a breathless psychological thriller about epic mind games” (from People Magazine's 20 Best Books to Read This Summer). It is destined to be the book everyone will be reading this summer. This page-turner about a family photographer, desperate to belong, who lives off of images rather than experiences will stay in readers minds for a long time. Brilliantly observed, suspenseful, a story of envy and obsession, mesmerizing, this is a unique novel and will make us doubt that seeing is ever believing. Listen in as we dig into the real-life event that inspired the story, why it’s so important to write every day, and what it’s like driving an RV from coast-to-coast. The Photographer is available wherever books are sold. This episode of Uncorking a Story is brought to you by Michael Carlon’s latest novel, The Ruin of Souls. You can purchase The Ruin of Souls in e-Book or paperback format or wherever books are sold. Enjoy the show.
