Celebrated costume designer and author, Tracy Tynan, joins Tom and Laurie to talk about her new memoir, Wear and Tear: The Threads of My Life. The daughter of a legendary couple from London during the Swinging ’60s – famed theater critic and playwright Kenneth Tynan (Oh! Calcutta!) and actress turned author Elaine Dundy (The Dud Avocado) – Tynan spins tales of a daringly dysfunctional, but beautifully dressed, nuclear family.
LARB editor (and new father) Evan Kindley drops by to recommend Child, the Family and the Outside World by British Developmental Psychoanalyst D.W. Winnicott, a pioneer in “object relations theory.”
