"Well, you said a mess with the conventions of fiction, not really I mean, so Dennis Lehane's sort of was kind enough to shepherd my last novel into the world in several ways. And when my editor sent it to him. I was shocked. I said why are you sending Dennis Lehane of all people my novel, and she said, well, you would would've crime novel. And I thought well, I, well, that's news to me turns out, it's also news to Dennis because he doesn't think of it as a crime novel. He was like this is a he called it an urban opera. I mean, and I a lot of his novels are not crime novels. You know, the historical fiction. They have gangsters in them. But it's not about the crime mystic river is barely a crime novel in my mind, it's a sociological exploration of childhood trauma and this working class suburb of Boston. And you know, I that's what I think I'm doing and Michael Connelly is the one the great chroniclers of Los Angeles. So yes, it is a little confusing for people who see their names, I did a panel Dennis. And they kept calling it a crime novel. And he. He said, why do they keep calling this book a crime novel? I said because your name is on. I don't think it's a crime. I'm gonna guess who cares about mocked anyway in a sense. But except that the fact that reading it some senses kind of it's a photo of confidence from the reader. They sit down with a book, they might buy it that might get it for live. But they've they invest in it and the the signaling on the outside the way it's presented in some sense changes that experience. Yeah. I think it, you know, I do worry about that a lot. But I also don't really care because I think that there are different types of crime novels in different types of mysteries. And it is there is a very conventional way to do it in an unconventional way to do it. And I think that you know, a mystery is anything that gets you to turn the page. You know, who is the naked, man. And why what is he running from? But there is a crime in my book there several crimes, and it's an examination of lives of crime, and what leads us to crime. But yeah, I mean, there probably are a bunch of very conventional followers of, you know, St James Patterson who are not gonna love it. But you know, maybe they'll learn. Again, it's not very conventionally constructed others split between two thousand and six and two thousand and ten is split between the city, and the desert and circling back was full as you kind of drawer in the disparate characters the characters you wouldn't even show who they were to start with. But you also playing with the expectations of how those pieces mutt? Eventually fit together. Yes, that's a really astute way of putting it because basically what I was doing is like crying my eyes out to figure out how they would ever come together. But no, I mean, I love the idea of, you know, again, as I as I say, you know, skid row isn't a conventional destination for most people, and it's not a place anyone intends to wind up. So just to figure out how lives come together to come in and out of skid row. It's an interesting place. It's quite fluid. People will be there for some time, and they'll come to the writing workshop, and then they'll disappear for weeks. And where did they go? You know, you would think if you lived in skid row, you didn't have a lot of choices to go. Elsewhere. You know, oh, she hasn't been around for a while. He hasn't been around for a while. No, I went to stay with my sister. So there's this fluidity that really interested me in a place where we imagine everyone is just stuck. So I thought, you know, all the different characters sort of contribute to that idea fluidity and motion. Guess it's almost without giving too much away..
