KCRW in Berlin: Author Nell Zink

Hosted by ,

Nell Zink’s funny new novel, Mislaid, tells the story of a family in Virginia: a lesbian and a gay man who have two children. They’re white—but when Peggy decides to leave her husband, she co-opts the identity of a black child for her daughter, and lives as a black woman herself. Zink grew up in rural Virginia and has lived in Germany for 15 years. Zink met us in Berlin in a beer garden, under a canopy of trees on the banks of a river.
