Tune in to ‘A Few Words’ this Monday from 6-7AM to hear my discussion with Mike Meginnis, author of Fat Man and Little Boy.

"Meginnis has written one of the best, most natural novels about the atomic bombs.” -The Millions “Impressive…Straddles a hybrid genre of historical magical realism.” -The Japan Times In this powerful debut novel, the atomic bombs dropped on Japan are personified, born on impact as Fat Man and Little Boy. Their small measure of humanity is a cruelty the bombs must suffer. Given life from death, the brothers travel west from Japan to France and later to America. Their journey is one of surreal and unsettling discovers, and author Mike Meginnis transforms these symbols of mass destruction into beacons of longing and hope. The winner of the 2013 Horatio Nelson Fiction Prize, Fat Man and Little Boy pulses with magical realism in an unprecedented approach to its tragic subject matter.
