Harriet Scott Chessman

Harriet Scott Chessman has written what used to be referred to as a “slim volume.” While not taking a great many pages to do so, she has created a deep story of guilt, redemption and the varieties of love.

Each of her characters bears a burden, and each deals with it more-or-less well. The end of the book leaves us to fill in many of the blanks, and I think this is what she was aiming at.

I spoke with her in our studios at All Classical Portland.
