60: Francine Prose & “Hangsaman”

Francine Prose joins C+D in the Damn Library for some lively talk of theater that misses the mark, thwarted ambitions, and following the characters of her newest novel, Mister Monkey. They also get into Hangsaman by Shirley Jackson, and Francine heartily recommends a foreign film that will “change your life.” And of course there is a brief Tournament of Books interlude. (Caw!)
