Elizabeth Crane is the guest. Her new novel, The History of Great Things, is available now from Harper Perennial.
Great to see Elizabeth again. She came over not too long ago and sat down across from me and we caught up. Her new novel is all about her late mother. It's about other things, too, but mostly it's about her mom. We get into that. We also talk about writing and fiction vs nonfiction and childhood and fears. We talk about preconception of structure vs intuitive making-it-up-as-you-go. We talk.
In today's monologue, I answer questions as smooth jazz plays in the background.
