On KRCB’s A Novel Idea, two authors at the top of their form —Joan Frank, with her novel All the News I Need, and Richard Alther and his book Roxie & Fred, join Suzanne Lang in conversation of art, craft, and character.
Joan Frank is acknowledged by many as a “writer’s writer” but more than that, she is a reader’s writer with keen observations, richly drawn characters, and unflinching honesty. Her latest book is All the News I Need.
Richard Alther is a painter and author whose novel Roxie & Fred delves into love over 50… Way over 50.
Both books explore the depths of love and loss, and the life available to us when we open up and let go of convention.
