A Ghost Story Explores The Anxiety Of Aging
The author William Conescu struggled with double vision before having surgery to fix the disorder.
The idea of double vision lingered with him and his new novel Kara Was Here (Soft Skull Press/ 2013), features a character who sees double, both literally and metaphorically. The character grapples with the conflict between the life he chose and the life he gave up. Host Frank Stasio speaks to William Conescu about the novel.
