Fiction, Consciousness, and Dreams: Erik Hoel Launches The Revelations with Andre Dubus III

April 6, 2021 via Zoom

Erik Hoel’s path to fiction writing may seem a little unconventional. He earned a Ph.D. in Neuroscience from the University of Wisconsin-Madison and has a career in research. He’s taken his intellectual curiosity to the written word through the art of storytelling, which earned him an Emerging Writer Fellowship from The Center for Fiction in 2017. His debut novel The Revelations is an edgy, thrilling story about neuroscience, death, and the search for the theory of human consciousness. The story follows an abrasive and ambitious neuroscientist thrust into a murder mystery.

Hoel was joined in conversation by Andre Dubus III (House of Sand and Fog, The Garden of Last Days).
