Alex George

Fiction

Interviewed by: Angela Elam

Catalog Number: 20130503, 20120629

After working for years as a corporate lawyer in England, Alex George moved to the states with his family in 2003, and later opened his own law practice in mid-Missouri. The author of four previous novels published in England, George made his American debut with the 2012 novel, A Good American, which received accolades from Barnes & Noble, Amazon, and O Magazine. An epic tale about German emigrants who settle in Missouri in the late 1800s, the novel explores the notion of family, home, and what it means to be an American. George discusses the inspiration behind this novel (now out in paperback) and why it took six years to write.
