The Chronology of Water
Writers Lidia Yuknavitch and Chelsea Cain shared tales from their writing group on today's Northwest Passages program. Lidia stuck around after the show and she and I talked about her new memoir, The Chronology of Water. It made me reconsider the linearity of time.
She also tells us what Ken Kesey whispered in her ear the first time they met. She explains why she leaves new books in public places. And she lets us in to the "white space" where she existed after experiencing deep sorrow.
She's not sad now! I hope you have a few minutes to listen.
