Darkly comic tales of suspicion, loneliness, and obsession, of characters pushed to the extreme—often by the unraveling in their own minds. Pulitzer Prize-winning author Jeffrey Eugenides discusses his new—and first—story collection, Fresh Complaint, with Danzy Senna, author of New People, a novel of race, class, and manners in New York City in the late 1990s. Moderated by Julie Buntin (Marlena).
