42: Alexander Chee & “What Belongs to You”

Alexander Chee stops into the Damn Library for a Lilliet and a discussion of his novel The Queen of the Night. Drew and Christopher ask after pop culture parallels and fidelity to nonfiction. They also discuss Garth Greenwell’s What Belongs to You and whether or not you’re a sucker to fall in love with a prostitute.
