49: Alexandra Kleeman & “Pricksongs and Descants”

Christopher and Drew are joined by returning guest Alexandra Kleeman. They all drink a cocktail named after a character who moonlights in both her short story collection “Intimations” and, maybe, within Robert Coover’s “Pricksongs and Descants.” They discuss being a person-person, talk fiction-fiction, and why puzzle-stories are sometimes best left unrevisited. Amongst other things.
