Sometimes inspiration arrives by accident.  As the novelist Hannah Tinti explains to Miwa Messer in this episode, that was particularly true in the case of the author’s second novel, The Twelve Lives of Samuel Hawley, a literary page-turner that follows her prize-winning 2008 bestseller The Good Thief.  Tinti joins us to talk about the unlikely circumstances that propelled her into the story of a parent whose good intentions clash with his life story  — and the strange New England ritual that introduced her to the book’s title character.
