The Bobcat by Katherine Forbes Riley

A Q&A With Katherine Forbes Riley, Author Of The Bobcat

It was a pleasure to chat with Katherine Forbes Riley about her debut novel, The Bobcat.

About the book: With the hypnotic intensity of Emily Fridlund’s The History of Wolves comes a mesmerizing love story in lush, gorgeous prose that examines art, science, nature, and the magic of human chemistry. Laurelie is an art student who has retreated deep into her imagination in the aftermath of a sexual assault. One day in the woods, she and the child she babysits encounter an injured pregnant bobcat and the reclusive hiker who has been following it for hundreds of miles. Together in the wilderness, they construct their own kind of separate peace. Then the child goes missing, forcing them all apart, and each must find a way to reenter the world alone.
