The Literary Life

Here is the next episode of The Literary Life hosted and produced by Penguin!!

I haven't had a chance to listen yet, but it sounds like a great episode!
Sigrid Nunez, author of Salvation City, discusses where she finds inspiration. I've heard such amazing things about her book and hope to read it soon! This episode includes other great topics: musician Joe Pernice performs and speaks about his new novel It Feels So Good When I Stop; Amy Einhorn, publisher and editor of The Help, discusses how an editor finds and works with prominent authors and Virginia Ironside, author of You’re Old, I’m Old, Get Used To It, rants about why you shouldn’t write in the present tense.

I'm sure I'll enjoy the present tense discussion... I've read books lately in this tense that I've enjoyed, but typically I find it irritating!
