We laughed. We (nearly) cried. We had a fantastic conversation!
I loved having award-winning author Nona Caspers in the studio!
We talked Edgar, writing, and all about her beautiful book, The Fifth Woman, this week named a Lambda Literary Award Finalist AND Foreword INDIES Book of the Year finalist- and already awarded the Mary McCarthy Prize in Short Fiction! While we were at, we also discussed grief, magical realism, the malleability of time - and humor!
Nona's work has been supported by a National Endowment for the Arts Fellowship, and her stories have appeared in literary reviews such as Kenyon Review, Glimmer Train, and The Sun. She is a professor of creative writing at San Francisco State University.
Next show No show next week. Next show is Sunday, March 31, when I’ll talk stage performance and podcasting with Natacha Ruck.
