Sometimes boredom takes hold and builds into malaise, unease and anxiety. For the character at the heart of Ruth Galm’s debut novel — who goes by B. — the result is an overwhelming nausea she calls “the carsickness.” B. attempts to outrun the oppressive state, fueled in part by the expectations she faces as a young woman just turning 30 in 1967. Thus begins an atypical road trip. We talk with Galm about the appeal of that era, her writing and B.’s quest for a sense of belonging.
