Yiyun Li, the acclaimed novelist and director of Princeton University’s Program in Creative Writing, discusses her latest novel -- a beguiling tale that winds from the postwar rural provinces to Paris, from an English boarding school to the quiet Pennsylvania home where a woman can live without her past -- with Idra Novey. "The Book of Goose" is a story of disturbing intimacy and obsession, of exploitation and strength of will.
