Sally Rooney: Great Expectations
Co-hosts Medaya Ocher and Kate Wolf speak with Sally Rooney about her two novels Conversations with Friends and Normal People. Dubbed the "Jane Austen of the precariat" and called "the first great millennial novelist," Rooney addresses the acclaim she’s received, and how she’s grown into the person and writer she is today. 

Also, William E. Jones returns to recommend The Impostor by Javier Cercas, which tells the story of Spaniard Enric Marco, who was a national hero until he was exposed as a fraud in 2005.
