78: Carolyn Murnick (THE HOT ONE) & Claire Dederer’s LOVE AND TROUBLE

Carolyn Murnick joins the guys in the Damn Library to discuss her memoir, The Hot One: a memoir of friendship, sex, and murder. Along with discussing that subtitle and the cover, the trio discuss Pop Culture’s helpfulness in navigating murder and courtrooms, as well as whether we had that friend that went down a path we couldn’t follow. Claire Dederer’s Love and Trouble: a Midlife Reckoning is also on the table which prompts the question: how do you interact with authors whose lives you know intimately before you’ve actually said hello?
