Marianne Wiggins

Shadowcatcher

Buy book  Comment  Email a friend  Embed

The Shadow Catcher dramatically inhabits the space where past and present intersect, seamlessly interweaving narratives from two different eras: the first fraught passion between turn-of-the-twentieth-century icon Edward Curtis (1868-1952) and his muse-wife, Clara; and a twenty-first-century journey of redemption. Following her National Book Award finalist, Evidence of Things Unseen, Marianne Wiggins turns her extraordinary literary imagination to the American West, where the life of legendary photographer Edward S. Curtis is the basis for a resonant exploration of history and family, landscape and legacy.

The book was fabulous! What a treat to hear Ms. Wiggins give a small sampling of the plot and the underlying theme. We will definitely add this to our staff picks page with the book review.

what a wonderful concept, I have read and enjoyed the Glass Castle, and now I hve had opportunity to hear from the author as well as her mother.
I look forward to "meeting" many authors in the future through this inventive site.

I've been thinking about reading this book. Now I definitely will. Thank you for the video!!

Love the videos. Much better than reading a simple review. The author's personality and motivation, so important to the finished product, come through clearly,

Love Mareanne's books and she is good on camera. Would love to see more book videos, these are GREAT.

This video is great!
