On this week's episode, we're delighted to welcome Linda Holmes, host of NPR's Pop Culture Happy Hour podcast, to discuss her sparkling debut novel, Evvie Drake Starts Over (that's "'Evvie like Chevy, not Evie like Max Greevey.'"). Evvie is a smart, vibrant thirty-something from small-town Maine who loses her husband and takes a tenant, a handsome Major League Baseball pitcher who's lost his mojo, maybe for good. We talk the "yips," platonic soulmates, auditory writing, cultural criticism, and more. Then our editors recommend books by Kwame Alexander, Kat Cho, and Kristen Arnett.
