Episode Info: When Angela's sprawling, keenly observed debut novel, "The Turner House," dropped last spring, it won rave reviews in big, important outlets like The New York Times. The novel picks up in 2008, with the housing market in full swoon. The many siblings of the huge Turner family in Detroit are fighting over what to do with the home in which they grew up: their matriarch is elderly and fading; the house is practically worthless. The novel hopscotches across the decades, telling the story of the Turners and the big, messy city they call home. Six months after it dropped, "The Turner House" is on the fiction shortlist for the National Book Award, the winner of which will be announced this Wednesday. Angela has been part of the PostBourgie family since nearly the beginning, and we were amped that she sat down to talk with G.D. about writing dialogue, channeling the very different POVs of her characters, and her otherwise big-ass year.
