So interesting to hear how you wrestle with the expectations of different styles and genres. Conveying accuracy to happenings and accuracy to feelings creates such dynamic tension, right? And then both have many lenses and perspectives. Writing poetry, I find myself wrestling with factual accuracy and historical precision more than I do with the evocation of feelings.

I’ve been thinking a lot about OF WOLVES AND MEN recently. Rereading sections, I am so moved by Lopez’s skill and talent navigating many kinds of truth using such a broad range of writing approaches. I don’t know of a more complexly rendered book.
