Ben Fountain: Beautiful Country Burn Again

Hosted by

A wild, America-loving novelist applies his talents to a shockingly funny and entertaining book about the election of 2016, how we got there, and why things are the way they are. Ben Fountain discusses writing with equal opportunity vexation, and trying to make sense of what we’re doing in our lives. Drama, emotion, and conflict—now everyday—are discussed in a historical, political, and cultural context.
