69: Julie Buntin & “Woman No. 17”

MARLENA MARLENA MARLENA! Julie Buntin drops into the Damn Library to talk her terrific debut novel, Marlena, and gets into whether she’s a Marlena or a Cat, if there’s a real Spicy Bob’s Pizza, and what she was hoping to get to at the core of her characters. Plus, she and the guys get really into Woman No. 17 by Edan Lepucki, which isn’t a noir even if it seems like it.
