Meet the readers from the House of Sand and Fog show discussion and read the letters that got them here!
"All the ups and downs and frustrations and anger and compassion and lesson and fire and so on, that this book put me through! I am aching to talk about it with many, with one, with Oprah."
"At first, I was outraged that Oprah would recommend a dark novel with no characters to truly like. Then, I realized that was the point — heroes and villains are simply people who make different choices from what we might make."
"The book took me into the lives of people that, God, could I relate to and see and know in my everyday life. I could see my parents' friends and relatives."
"I think this book is about much more than a house, it's about these destructive life roads we go down and how we navigate them."
