Andrew Sean Greer: The Impossible Lives of Greta Wells

Hosted by


When the title character of Andrew Sean Greer's The Impossible Lives of Greta Wells undergoes electro-convulsive therapy, she finds herself traveling through time – not to revisit past lives, but to reopen once-possible futures. Greer talks candidly about his heroine's late wish to escape the troubled 1980's, his experience inhabiting a female narrative voice, and the gender traveling implicit in his latest novel.
