Janet Benton talks about writing and researching her debut novel Lilli De Jong, and tells us why Kirkus Reviews called it a “monumental achievement.” Author Jamie Ford adds:“A powerful, authentic voice for a generation of women whose struggles were erased from history—a heart-smashing debut that completely satisfies.”
She has worked at magazines and newspapers and taught at four colleges, as well as running the writer’s workshop The Word Studio. Find out about all this and more on the LIARS CLUB ODDCAST (and check out Jon McGoran, Bill Russell, and a host of others).
Sue Miller, author of The Good Mother, Inventing the Abbots, and more terrific novels, talks with the Liars Club about how much she knows and doesn’t know as she writes, and a dozen other intricacies of the craft, on this week’s Liars Club Oddcast.
Premiering January 5th, 2017 (that’s today): The Liars Club Oddcast, on the Project Entertainment Network.
Just a bunch of people who make stuff up for a living, interviewing other people who make stuff up for a living, and all while drinking beer and wine in the middle of the day. What could possibly go wrong?
Join us for a lively round of lies and exaggerations featuring everyone from NY Times Bestselling authors to National Book Award finalists to debut novelists, screenwriters, actors and more. Hosted by The Philadelphia Liars Club. Note: We are not responsible for the truthiness of any content, because, well, Liars. You get the picture.
First up will be Jonathan Maberry, who cofounded the Philadelphia Liars Club with me back in the 1870s… Trust me, I’m a Liar.
