Author Lidia Yuknavitch weaves together the past, present and future in her new novel that imagines a world in which people have the chance to change the stories they came from.

Her book, Thrust, follows Laisve, a girl who uses objects to travel through time and connect with individuals throughout the centuries.

I recently spoke with Lidia Yuknavitch about her love of repetition, the changing nature of language, and more. Here’s our conversation.


Thrust by Lidia Yuknavitch was published by Riverhead Books.
