Interview: Matt Bondurant

As the film version of his sophomore novel begins drawing rave reviews, Matt Bondurant sits down with January Magazine contributing editor MaryAnne Kolton to talk about his own view of his life and work:
Matt Bondurant is passionate about life, writing and open water. His third novel follows the hugely successful The Wettest County In the World, now a riveting film called Lawless. 
His new novel, The Night Swimmer, is a richly textured journey of a young couple, Fred and Elly. This powerful tale of melancholy, goats and the dark waves off the southern coast of Ireland, caught me up and held me in its net until the very last page.
