This week’s show features our final interviews from the Los Angeles Times Festival of Books. We talk with Sarah Bakewell, author of At the Existentialist Cafe: Freedom, Being, and Apricot Cocktails. Tony Tulathimutte joins us to discuss his novel Private Citizens and how he overcame his fear of writing comedy. We also talk with Andrea Kleine about her deeply personal novel Calf, a story about a love affair between John Hinckley, Jr. (the failed Reagan assassin) and Leslie DeVeau, a woman who murdered her own daughter.
