Ariel Schrag is the guest. Her new novel Adam is now available from Houghton Mifflin Harcourt. 

Publishers Weekly says

"Schrag's frisky one of the most original coming-of-age stories of recent years."

And Flavorwire says

"Ariel Schrag’s story about a teenager who goes to spend the summer in New York with his sister is unlike any coming-of-age story you’ll read anytime soon. Funny and tender... Anybody familiar with Schrag’s comics won’t be disappointed with her work as a novelist; if you haven’t read her other work, let Adam be your introduction and read everything else you can find of hers from there."

Monologue topics: preschool, social anxiety, inferiority, courtesy, instincts.
