Behind the Book
Avi writes: I’m not someone who remembers his dreams to any great degree. And such dreams as I do recall rarely have much to do with my writing. Encounter at Easton, however, came out of a dream. Or maybe it wasn’t a dream. It is a sequel to Night Journeys, and shortly after I had written that book, I started thinking about what might happen to the characters. I rather worried about them. In the event, one night I dreamed of what might have happened to them. When I woke up and remembered that dream I had the broad contours of Encounter at Easton.
