R. O. Kwon - The Incendiaries

In Conversation with C Pam Zhang

Grieving and guilt-ridden, Phoebe is drawn into a secretive cult founded by a charismatic former student with an enigmatic past. There she meets Will, a misfit scholarship boy waiting tables to get by.

When the group commits a violent act in the name of faith, Will finds himself struggling to confront a new version of the fanaticism he’s worked so hard to escape.

Haunting and intense, The Incendiaries is a fractured love story that explores what can befall those who lose what they love most.

 

R. O. Kwon is a National Endowment for the Arts Literature Fellow. Her writing is published or forthcoming in the New York TimesNew YorkThe GuardianViceBuzzfeedTimeNoon,Electric LiteraturePlayboy, and elsewhere. Born in South Korea, she has lived most of her life in the United States.

Born in Beijing but mostly an artifact of the United States, C Pam Zhang is the recipient of support from Tin House, Bread Loaf, Aspen Words, and elsewhere. Her work lives in publications such as Kenyon ReviewThe Pushcart Prize Anthology, and McSweeney’s Quarterly; she herself has lived in thirteen cities across four countries and is still pondering home.
