In a Q&A, the bestselling Canadian author talks about her fascination with the 19th century, why her main character is intersex and how her writing has changed.

With Fayne, Ann-Marie MacDonald’s first novel in eight years, the bestselling Canadian author creates another spellbinding tale with a masterful story arc and more layers than Victorian undergarments.
