If you've read Ms. Walden's books before, you may have run across one or two that were somewhat controversial. You may be wondering why she'd take on a topic like a school shooting. I don't know, exactly, but I'd guess because these characters came to her and asked to be heard; and because she is brave and honest, so if a story needs to told, she tells it, no matter what. So, you can go into this with your own prejudices, political views, and biases, but you should be prepared to feel them slip away from you without your control.
I can honestly say that I didn't want to love Jeremy. I didn't even want to like him. I was afraid of him, afraid of what he could do; and I was afraid of what my deep affection for him said about me. Who loves a killer? Who loves someone who has such a deep desire to do harm to others? But here's the thing: Jeremy has no more capacity for vengeance and hate than the rest of us. Don't we all hold a dark and secret space that we keep a lid on? How many of us would admit to our ugliest thoughts, even when they were fleeting, heat-of-the-moment ideas with no chance of being brought to life?Read more ›
I look to books for an escape, those minutes, hours, days that I can put real life issues on the backburner and get lost in someone else's drama, their romance, their struggles, their truth. I think the gravity of Interim might be too much for some readers to take. But I'm a reader that can separate fact from fiction, reality from storytelling and I did that with Interim. I can do that because it feels better to feel pain and loss and fear for fictional characters in fictitious circumstances than it does to turn on the news and face the reality of it. It feels so good to get lost in pretend, even if that pretend makes you feel real, profound, painful emotions. I can close Interim and sigh with relief that, despite the pain and the violence and the gravity of this story, it wasn't real.Read more ›
Now that you know the story behind the song, have you ever taken a moment to focus on the words of Jeremy? Go on.....pull out your iPod or do a search of YouTube videos and listen. It's a very deep and dark song about a troubled teenager who decides to take control of his life and fight back on his own terms. It didn't take long for me to recall Pearl Jam’s Jeremy once I began reading Interim, and the song will forever mean more to me now that I have read this novel.
It wasn't easy for S. Walden to write her story about Jeremy Stahl. It took her a long time to come to terms with what was bouncing around in her head. Walden wants readers to know she is not speaking to a point. She has no agenda. She just has a story. Knowing Walden’s proclivity to write about dark and controversial subjects, I was nervous about reading Interim. In fact, I have never feared the content of a novel like I did with Interim. I had a healthy respect for this story based on the synopsis and personal discussion with the author before I began reading.
Walden truly agonized over writing Interim. Bullying. Parental neglect and abuse. Gun violence in schools.Read more ›
