Umrigar ImageReaders come to books in search of characters they can love, hate, empathize with or relate to. But how do writers create characters that are realistic and who remain with the reader after he or she is done with a novel? In this talk, Thrity Umrigar, Professor of English at Case Western Reserve University and bestselling author of the novels The Space Between Us, If Today Be Sweet, Bombay Time, The Weight of Heaven and The World We Found, explains her own writing process.
