Had such a fun time talking with Lidia. It was one of those conversations that could’ve easily gone longer. She’s just a great person to have a conversation with, especially when you’re talking about things like books and art and life and death and writing, and so on. She’s been through some stuff. She’s written her way through some stuff. She’s very generous in sharing what’s on her mind and in her heart. I think you guys will really enjoy hearing from her. I always do.
In the monologue I talk about my daughter, a recent hike we took, and a question that she asked me out of the blue. It involves incarceration.
