Interview from the archives with Richard McCann, author of Mother of Sorrows (Vintage 2006).

This week’s  Write The Book Prompt, in honor of father’s day, which was yesterday, is to write 500 words about a father and child. Use sensory detail and specifics to convey as much as you can about this relationship without using backstory to tell the reader all about their history, and without falling into sentimentality. 

Good luck with this prompt and please listen next week for another.
