MY INTERVIEW WITH AUTHOR EVAN FALLENGERG

The Parting Gift is an erotic tale of lust, jealousy, and revenge set on a spice farm in Israel. Fallenberg has great control over language and over his unnamed narrator, who writes the story in letter-form. In our interview, we discuss unreliable narrators, craft, and Fallenberg’s work as a Hebrew translator.
