Last night I welcomed local author Dan Ferullo to the WRKO studios for a discussion about his novel Monster Hill,
It’s the early sixties, and the wife of Henry Sommers, the leader of the notorious Winter Hill Gang, is brutally murdered in her Boston hospital room, resulting in a gangland war lasting over thirty years and throwing a close-kit Irish family into a whirlpool of violence, deceit, and heartbreak.
This is a purely fictional story, not a Bulger-book (not that there’s anything wrong with that.:) Dan has a background in law enforcement and that contributes greatly to the overall character development. We’ve done a lot of author interviews over the years and one thing I’ve always been fascinated by is how they structure their stories, how they piece things together and develop the narrative. It is especially interesting when talking about fiction or a novel where the writers imagination controls all.
