Salman Rushdie praised author A.M. Homes’ novel, The Unfolding, as “written almost entirely in pitch-perfect dialogue, that feels terrifyingly close to the unfunny truth.” The Unfolding, written before the January 6th Insurrection, follows a Republican donor plotting a mob assault on Washington. A.M. and Laura discuss political fiction, women writers and the unraveling of American democracy.
