Memoirist Tad Friend, author of In the Early Times, and I discuss getting to the truth in memoir, what to do when you’re asked to record your own audio book (and don’t want to), revision, backstory vs. front story, and so much more.
Tad Friend has been a New Yorker staff writer since 1998. An excerpt of this book was published in an April issue, which is when I became aware of the memoir and knew I had to have Tad on the show.
