MIKE NEMETH: THE UNDISCOVERED COUNTRY

 

Acclaimed novelist Mike Nemeth joins Big Blend Radio for a conversation about his new crime thriller “The Undiscovered Country” that explores the complexities of families, the depth of secrets they hide and the sacrifices they make to keep them buried.

A follow-up to his bestselling debut novel “Defiled,” “The Undiscovered Country” tells the story of Randle Marks, a wrongfully convicted felon on parole trying to cope with his mother’s death and his family’s moral corruption and hidden motives. In an effort to protect the family’s matriarch from his selfish siblings and negligent caregivers, the ever-crafty Randle discovers the truths of his own life, forced to the sidelines due to societal expectations of his mother’s time.

 

Nemeth presents a relatable narrative about the ins-and-outs of a Southern family’s dysfunction on the brink of losing a loved one. And as with all difficult situations, you begin to question everything you previously considered truth, and as Randle copes with the death of his mother, he begins to wonder if the people who share his name have something to gain.

 

“The experience of my mother’s passing inspired me to write ‘The Undiscovered Country,’” Nemeth says. “The title is a line from Shakespeare’s ‘Hamlet’ and refers to the unknown afterlife. I wanted to tell the story of the conflicts that arise when a loved one passes. The protagonist, Randle, is conflicted about how to deal with his mother’s imminent passing. Should he let her go or fight for her life? Should he honor her wishes or find the truth about her life and his as well? Should he reconcile with his siblings, as she’d have wished, or succumb to the compulsion to gain revenge?”
