In today's flashback, an outtake from Episode 616, my conversation with Tim O'Brien from December 2019.

O'Brien received the 1979 National Book Award for Going After Cacciato. Among his other books are The Things They Carried, Pulitzer Finalist and a New York TimesBook of the Century, and In the Lake of the Woods, winner of the James Fenimore Cooper Prize. He was awarded the Pritzker Literature Award for lifetime achievement in military writing in 2013.

His new novel, America Fantastica, is due out in October 2023 from Mariner Books.

I spoke with Tim O'Brien as he was on tour in support of his memoir, Dad's Maybe Book.

Air date: December 11, 2019.
