It took a dog to teach me how to love the woods

by Chris Bohjalian For most of my adult life, I’ve lived near or in the Vermont woods. And when I say lived “near” or “in” the woods, I mean it. In 2017, my wife and I moved into a house in the woods at the end of a dirt driveway so long that it terrifies […]

My Proud Pilgrimage to My Homeland — and Our Line in the Sand

The forward trenches in the hills just beyond the abandoned village of Talish, in Nagorno-Karabakh, are reminiscent of World War I: long, endless, slits in the ground, the dirt buttressed by wood, with periodic firing posts and dugouts. Stacked tires packed with dirt stand in for sandbags, but otherwise it looks like the Western Front […]

IN THE EMERGENCY ROOM, DOCTORS NEED DETECTIVE SKILLS—AND EMPATHY: Why I went looking for inspiration in the ER

A tenacious ER doctor is the heroine in my new thriller about a deadly pathogen, THE RED LOTUS. My time researching the novel with ER doctors left me gobsmacked and grateful.

Invariably, my day begins by watching movie trailers or music videos to get into the right emotional space for whatever scene I am going to write that morning. Movie trailers and music videos […]

The Fugitive Life of an Airline Employee

When I was a boy, I had an uncle who married a flight attendant—or what we called back then a (forgive me) stewardess. It was his second marriage and I was too young to understand the enticing aroma of scandal that swirled around the divorce from his first wife, but even as an elementary school […]

The Flight Attendant Has Landed!

“Filled with turbulence and sudden plunges in altitude, ‘The Flight Attendant’ is a very rare thriller whose penultimate chapter made me think to myself, ‘I didn’t see that coming.’ The novel — Bohjalian’s 20th — is also enhanced by his deftness in sketching out vivid characters and locales and by his obvious research into the […]
