Gibson is at work on a novel entitled A River Between Us, a story about a new father trying to find his way in a new city as his wife begins medical school. It tracks a group of first-year medical students who grow close to each other when one of them discovers a reoccurrence of breast cancer.
It is a book about the gap between the stories we tell ourselves and our actual, everyday lives. Where are the lines between stories that enrich us, stories we tell for our own sanity, and stories that have the power to destroy us?
