The Front Row

The Storm at the Door by Stefan Merrill Block

In his latest novel, Stefan Merrill Block re-imagines the story of his grandparents' real-life struggles in the cracks between language and sanity, memory and history, and life in the “normal” world versus that in a psychiatric hospital. The author chats about The Storm at the Door before his appearance at Houston's Blue Willow Bookshop.
