Domenica Ruta is the guest. Her new memoir, With or Without You, is now available from Spiegel & Grau.

Entertainment Weekly calls it

“Stunning . . . comes across as a bleaker, funnier, R-rated version of The Glass Castle and marks the arrival of a blazing new voice in literature.”

And The New York Times Book Review calls it

“A luminous, layered accomplishment.”

Also this episode:  a brief conversation with Jessica Anya Blau, whose new novel, The Wonder Bread Summer, is now available from Harper Perennial. 

Monologue topics:  the sun's lethal nature, worrying about people not being worried about me.
