Lisa Lipkind Leibow’s debut novel Double Out and Back is a roller coaster of a read and a fantastic one at that. I thoroughly enjoyed reading Lisa’s novel, I was loathe to put it down, the story captivated me. Thank you, Lisa, for such a great read and for participating in this interview.
DOUBLE OUT AND BACK QUESTIONS
The title Double Out and Back is a great one, it alludes to the roller coaster of life. Can you explain the title a bit for our readers? Are you a fan of roller coasters yourself?
A double out and back roller coaster is one that travels “a circuit which heads out and then returns to the station, progressing over a number of bunny-hops, and then traveling out again and returning finally to the station.” You’re exactly right that it’s symbolic of the ups, downs, and second chances we all encounter as we go through life. I don’t want to spoil the plot for those who haven’t yet read the novel, but there are also some other links to “double out” and then going back for further action.
