Episode 4.5 - What's Norman Mailer Going To Do With a $100 Bill?

Episode 4.5 - What's Norman Mailer Going To Do With a $100 Bill?

On our first ever between the book episode (a minisode, a .5, whatever you want to call it!) we bring you the story of the Native American literature world's very own Rachel Dolezal. Becca and Corinne try to break down one man's many grifting ways in the aftermath of a PEN Literary award scandal. Lessons learned: do some leg work.

**NOTE: this episode was produced and published many months before the news of accusations against Sherman Alexie reached outside of the publishing world. The Bookstore stands in solidarity with victims and the #metoo movement.

Next week we read Gilead by Marilynne Robinson. Find it at a bookstore near you and read along!
