Bill welcomes author Lydia Millet to the show. Lydia Millet is an award-winning novelist and short story writer. Her third novel, My Happy Life, won the 2003 PEN Center USA Award for Fiction, and she has been a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize as well as a Guggenheim fellow, among other honors. Laura Miller of Salon has described Millet’s writing as “…always flawlessly beautiful, reaching for an experience that precedes language itself.” Millet has written books and stories that range from the philosophical to the satirical, on matters including the inventors of the atom bomb, political culture under George H. W. Bush, the discovery of mermaids in a coral reef and the crises of extinction and climate change. Her latest book is the short story collection Fight No More. Should be awesome!
