Lidia Yuknavitch and Louisa Hall

Co-host Nicole Nelson talks to Lidia Yuknavitch, author of The Small Backs of Children, about exploring the fluidity of identity, the challenge and necessity of awareness of scripts in art and in life, and how she is influenced by photography and film. Then Louisa Hall, author of Speak, talks about creating a novel with the innovative structure combining court transcripts, a diary, letters, and a memoir, about finding the voice of Mary, the 17th-century young woman at the heart of the novel, and about postponing her poet's habit of cutting and perfecting when writing fiction.
