Intrusions

Ursula Hegi (Author)
Available

Description

Brilliantly stretching literary conventions, Ursula Hegi creates a funny and original novel within a novel to explore the doubts, decisions, and "might-have-beens" that mark not only the writing process but life itself. As her "author" and her fictional heroine deal with their intrusions into each other's lives. Hegi reveals much about the choices women make, the ambiguities they face, and the often surprising ways reality and fiction merge.

Reviews

Mary Mackey San Francisco Chronicle Hegi has a real genius for the material of personal existence, for the world seen close up...fascinating.
Robert Sorensen Minneapolis Tribune A delightful and perceptive novel about the creative process and the nature of reality.
Victoria Kohl Los Angeles Herald Examiner Hegi's sharp perceptions, humor and talent...have created a unique and satisfying read about the burden of being responsible for ourselves.
