Jenny Offill interview
If I were Jenny Offill, I’d consider the Marginalia interview fun, and not work. This and the NYT podcast I heard not long ago, make me curious enough about her style to read “Dept. of Speculation.”
Informative and thought-provoking
I always learn something new or interesting while listening to this podcast. Great questions and conversation that always enhance my reading experience or make me add yet another book to my towering TBR stack!
This Marginalia podcast was recommended to me by a friend and I have to admit I was not disappointed. I was excited to see a plethora of interviews from authors I love! These interviews are well thought out and thought provoking. Thanks to this podcast I'm creating a list of new books to read as I write! I will definitely be recommending this podcast to my other book-loving friends.
