Audible Editor Reviews

The "Afternoon Night Table Series" at the 92nd Street Y is a favorite for literary buffs. The series has hosted Ann Beattie, E.L. Doctorow, and Gary Trudeau, among other great writers. In this interview from 2008, journalist and author Roger Rosenblatt interviews Alice McDermott, winner of both an American Book Award and a National Book Award for Fiction. Rosenblatt begins the program by reading exquisitely from the first chapter of McDermott's novel After This. In conversation, McDermott then expands on her own work and the themes that underlie her prose. The two extremely well-read writers delve beyond literature to how people transcend periods of grief to rediscover moments of joy.
