"Meginnis has written one of the best, most natural novels about the atomic bombs.”
“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.
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.
And, as always, please support independent authors!:

'A Few Words' airs alternating Monday mornings from 6-7AM and attempts to cover two main subjects: dissident politics and indie literature (usually through updates on popular activism to address the former and interviews with authors to address the latter).
On this episode i'll discuss the #ShellNo movement by Greenpeace activists which successfully stopped an Arctic drilling ship, the Department of Homeland Security's monitoring (and implicit intimidation) of the BlackLivesMatter movement, the overly harsh punishment of anti-fur activists being tried as domestic terrorists under the Animal Enterprise Terrorism Act as well as a half-hour interview with Ashley Byrne, a Campaign Specialist for PETA, about Cecil the Lion and PETA activism in general.
