Halfway from Home
Split/Lip Press 2022
Today I interview Sarah Fawn Montgomery about her new collection of essays, Halfway from Home (Split Lip Press, 2022). These essays explore, in nuanced and beautiful prose, Montgomery’s journey to find a place—or perhaps a place of mind—she might call home. We follow Montgomery from childhood to adulthood, from California, to the Midwest, to the East Coast. This is a journey that asks what it means to grow into wisdom and to love this burning earth which, in one way or another, is where we all must find ourselves a home. Halfway from Home is a book for any of us who have ever struggled to belong and who very much want to.
