Joanna Rakoff & Kseniya Melnik

Joanna Rakoff shares her memoir, My Salinger Year, with Marrie.  She talks about the similarities between memoir and fiction, the right time to write a memoir, and what she learned about publishing and writing from her year of working with a literary agent.  Kseniya Melnik joins in the second half to discuss her debut short story collection, Snow in May.  She discusses the importance of place, dialogue, and writing in a language that's not her own.
