“I’m really interested in how characters inhabit space"

3/9/2017

Eric Neuenfeldt, author of the Grace Paley Prize wining collection of short stories Wild Horse , talks with Reno News & Review.

“I’m really interested in how characters inhabit space and their relationship to place, and how place can sort of direct decisions at times,” Neuenfeldt said. In the story that takes place in Susanville, he said, “The narrator … likes to be outside and kind of get out, especially at night, where it’s quiet, and I think that has a relationship with what he’s looking for in his life.”

Neuenfeldt is now working on his next book, a novel.
