Claire Hoffman is the guest. Her new memoir, Greetings from Utopia Park, is available now from Harper Books. 

Claire is a friend of mine here in Los Angeles. She grew up in Fairfield, Iowa in an intentional community founded by the late Maharishi Mahesh Yogi. Maharishi, for the uninitiated, was a spiritual guru and the progenitor of transcendental meditation, or TM. Claire's memoir deals in family history, her experiences growing up in Fairfield, and her struggle to come to terms with what it means to lead a spiritual life.  

In today's monologue, I talk about my friendship with Claire, and about interruptions, and (again) about my impending move.
