95: Megan Abbott (GIVE ME YOUR HAND) & Lisa Halliday’s ASYMMETRY

Megan Abbott returns to the Damn Library for her new book Give Me Your Hand, and Christopher cooks up a color changing cocktail to celebrate. The guys get into Megan’s dual jobs as novelist and tv writer, her thriller philosophy, and how writing people who are smart rather than brawny is a challenge. They also talk Lisa Halliday’s Asymmetry, its relation to Phillip Roth, and some of their own desert island discs. And lots more!
