Historical Author Janet Benton on the Oddcast

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).
