Fiction writer Jaimy Gordon worked on her novel, Lord of Misrule, set on a West Virginia horse racetrack, for over a decade before it was published in November 2010. That same month, the novel became the dark horse of the literary world by winning the 2010 National Book Award. Gordon reads from the novel, which recently won the 2012 Independent Publishers Gold IPPY Award for Literary Fiction, and also talks about the craft of writing and some of the similar threads that weave through her six books, including the recently re-released Bogeywoman.
