Elizabeth Strout and Lise Funderburg on Writers on Writing, KUCI-FM

Elizabeth Strout returns with Olive, Again, a newly released collection that picks up where Olive Kitteridge left off. Elizabeth joins Marrie Stone to talk about how Olive reasserted herself, how the world has changed around her, and how Elizabeth managed to leave a porous space around Olive (and her other characters) so readers might insert their own experiences into the narrative.

In the second half, Lise Funderburg shares her anthology, Apple, Tree: Writers on their Parents. She talks bout the relationship middle-aged adults have with their parent's legacies, how she chose this special crop of authors, and gives a mini-class on the essay form and what makes an essay work.
