Novelists Louisa Treger and Susan Rebecca White discuss their new novels and how their characters get into "good trouble."

In Louisa Treger's Dragon Lady and Susan Rebecca White's We Are All Good People Here, privileged but unorthodox 20th century women counter the expectations people have for them and get into "trouble" for "good" causes. It's a daily paradox in our own time as much as it was during the decades of these fictional settings--how does a person take meaningful political action in ways that can actually be effective and do not widen our political divide or otherwise do harm? There are consequences of trying to effect social change when ideology gets in the way. Yeats comes to mind in the reading of these two novels: "The best lack all conviction while the worst are full of passionate intensity."
