"I spend all day in a room thinking about people that don't exist"
Listen to our latest interview with author of 'Infinite Home' Kathleen Alcott talk about the beauty of New York, the idea of living alone, why technology and our age of 'connectiveness' has damaged our ability to empathise and writing her first historical novel.
Infinite Home tells the story of a charming, if dilapidated, Brooklyn brownstone where a family of sort live: beautiful agoraphobe Adeleine, who surrounds herself with the past; Thomas, an artist who has shut away his materials in the wake of a stroke; Edward, a cynical stand-up comedian mired in depression and Paulie, a young man with William’s Syndrome, a disease that grants him the irrepressible cheerfulness of a six-year-old.
Brought together by ageing landlady Edith, the tenants all live safely in tune with each other, even if they do keep to themselves. But when their home is suddenly and violently threatened, they are shocked into action.
