Writer Tess Gunty on “The Rabbit Hutch” – CBS News
She is the breakout talent whose debut novel, “The Rabbit Hutch,” won Tess Gunty the National Book Award for fiction. The novel, set in a downtrodden city inspired by her hometown of South Bend, Indiana, follows young adults who have aged out of the foster care system without having found a “forever” family. CBS News’ Robert Costa talks with the 30-year-old author about her own background – both similar and different from her protagonist’s – and about her passionate advocacy for the craft of novel writing.
