Abstract
Brief excerpt from interview: It's the human thing, to have that sense of place. That shapes behavior, from the Samoan perspective. That piece of land, in the physical sense, is very important. You can go anywhere, but know that there is that place that you call home. In literary explorations, place is what grounds the characters, or lack thereof affects them in more negative ways. That grounding for me, makes place very very critical in literary discussions.
