Barbara Kingsolver's new novel, "The Lacuna," is the story of a man who spends his youth among legendary Mexican figures Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera, then grows reclusive in older age. Journals from his tumultuous early life illustrate history in an unique way.

Kingsolver talked with Kerri Miller on Nov. 11 at the Fitzgerald Theater as part of the Talking Volumes regional book club series.
