"We moved around a lot and I think that's part of what inspired me to become a writer...it's very hard for people like me to answer the question 'Where are you from?' in a very short sentence." Mia Alvar talks about the inspiration behind her story collection, In the Country (Knopf, 2015), for which she received the 2016 PEN/Robert W. Bingham Prize for Debut Fiction.
