Quick publicity note: Snap Judgment, the popular NPR story-telling show and podcast, has a segment this week in which I describe how I uncovered the story that became “My Mother’s Lover,” the Atavist story that became a #1 best-selling Kindle Single.

You can find the Snap Judgment segment here.

You can read the story itself either via Kindle or, far better, methinks, in its gorgeous Atavist presentation using photographs, film, audio, maps, and a timeline. Enjoy.
