The 'Morning Edition' Book ClubHere's how it works: A well-known writer picks a book he or she loved. We all read it and you send us your questions. About a month later, we reconvene to talk about the book with the author and the writer who picked it.
Kate Atkinson says she never sees her characters at just one stage of their lives. Just as we are constantly thinking about the past, present and future in real life, she constructs her characters in the same way.
