Shop Talk: Laura Lippman Is a Morning Writer (But the Walk Comes First)

There’s just something about Laura Lippman. Some unquantifiable X-factor. A raw power, buzzing beneath the surface of the bestselling author’s laid-back demeanor. When we sat down for our talk, it was getting late, a little past nine. Laura stared back at me through my computer screen almost sleepy-eyed. Glass of red wine in hand, she admitted it was nearing her bedtime.

Boon Companions Laura Lippman and Baltimore Electrify Readers in “Seasonal Work”

Happy Silver Anniversary to Laura Lippman who made her debut as a fiction writer in 1997 during her 15-year tenure as a Baltimore Sun reporter. Her celebratory gift to avid fans and new readers alike is Seasonal Work (William Morrow), an electrifying collection of short stories, which includes a compelling new novella. Lippman is a literary luminary, shining as brightly as the towering, red neon Domino Sugars sign that proclaims “Home” to returning Baltimoreans. The city is as essential to both setting and character as the Old Bay Seasoning that flavors the fabled Charm City crab cakes. A surgical patient administered a general anesthetic is rendered unconscious after counting backward to about three, and Lippman’s readers are captivated by her spell in about five words. (This avid reader only recently discovered her writing and has since been voraciously reading through her back catalog.)
