"Years later, I visited Roland's grave in the elbow of a windswept country crossroads on the Western Front, shadowed by a white cenotaph inscribed THEIR NAME LIVETH FOR EVERMORE... As I stood there, faced with the immediacy of Roland's life and death, my imagination began to stretch at last. I had something to write about: an officer of the Great War—like Roland, or Julian Grenfell, or Rupert Brooke—who, embodying his era's code and customs, finds himself in modern-day Manhattan, about to deliver a blow to the gut of an unsuspecting young woman. I became a novelist, someone with many stories to tell. That long-ago seminar became The Class." Read more about Beatriz's inspiration for Overseas.
