By the Book: The Sweetest Fruits, by Monique Truong

Monique Truong’s latest novel, The Sweetest Fruits, takes a unique approach to telling the story of Lafcadio Hearn, celebrated Japanese writer of Greek-Irish descent: the book is narrated by three different women in his life, from three different times and places. We speak with Monique about her process of researching and writing this story, and more generally, on the question of, who gets to tell a story? We wrap up the show with a review of the book, and our experiences reading it.
