Nina McConigley Reads From Her Forthcoming Novel

NM045C.jpg

Nina McConigley teaches in the Honors Program at the University of Wyoming. She is the author of the story collection Cowboys and East Indians, winner of the 2014 PEN Open Book Award. This excerpt from the prologue of her forthcoming novel, The Call of Migratory Things, follows a family beginning in 1980’s Wyoming and goes back to pre-independence India. It is 1986, and teenagers Agatha Krishna and Georgie have murdered their uncle. As the sisters work to control their crime and its after-effects, what it means to be truly independent is tested – when one’s country, family, and life are inextricably always tied with an other. ?
