Chaney Kwak (Fiction, June 2009) appears in conversation (virtually) with Lori Ostlund to discuss The Passenger hosted by Magers & Quinn Booksellers in Minneapolis. In a starred review, Foreword Reviews writes, “The Passenger, with its bare-bones honesty and dry, cynical humor, reveals that when all is said and done, it’s the little things that matter: small acts of courage and kindness, words of love, and gratitude for the gift of another day.”
