You sometimes read a book where the setting is such an indelible part of the story that it seems like a character unto itself. A discussion of writing place with T Kira Madden, author of the memoir Long Live the Tribe of Fatherless Girls, set among the privilege and danger of Boca, Raton Florida; and Elizabeth McCracken, author of Bowlaway, set in a New England candlepin bowling alley. Moderated by Marisa Siegel, editor-in-chief of The Rumpus.
