LARB Radio Hour’s Kate Wolf, Medaya Ocher, and Eric Newman braved 90 degree heat to speak with authors Garth Greenwell, Marcy Dermansky, and Dana Spiotta at this year’s LA Times Festival of Books held on April 22 and 23 at USC’s campus. Garth Greenwell is the author of the novel What Belongs to You. Marcy Dermansky’s latest novel is The Red Car (which was recommended a few weeks ago on the LARB Radio hour). Dana Spiotta is a return guest on the show and author most recently of Innocents and Others: A Novel. All three offer spirited observations on contemporary literature, as well as our troubled political times.
