"The Baltimore Atrocities"

Oct 31, 2014

"The Baltimore Atrocities” is the title of the latest book by author John Dermot Woods. It’s a novel, but it’s not like any other novel you've ever read. It’s composed of a series of short tragic stories – the "atrocities" of the title – all of which are loosely connected to a larger narrative, involving missing children, and their siblings’ search for answers. That story, in itself, an atrocity. John Dermot Woods currently spends his days in Brooklyn, New York. But, the time spent here in Charm City appears to have affected him deeply. He joins Nathan Sterner to discuss the book.
