Katie Kitamura’s newest work reads like Daphne DuMaurier for the 21stcentury. The author and art critic talks to us about estrangements driving her gripping exploration of human connection, A Separation. And Hannah Tinti tells about crafting the dark family history that became her lest book, The Twelve Lives of Samuel Hawley. How much do we know about our parents? How much can we bear to know? The Washington Post calls it “a master class of literary suspense.” Also we meet the celebrated pop critic Chuck Klosterman (But What If We’re Wrong?, Chuck Klosterman X), who decides and recodes everything from Taylor Swift to Kobe Bryant, Stephen Malkmus to Lou Reed. We’ll check in on his new essay collection. With OPB’s April Baer and OPB’s Aaron Scott.
