Novelist Peter Behrens’ fascination with his Irish-Canadian family served as the inspiration for his two latest novels, The Law of Dreams and, most recently, The O’Briens. In the video below, Behrens discusses The O’Briens and reads, from its pages, a letter from a World War II soldier to his wife back home in Montreal.
