This week’s show features an in-depth conversation with novelist and screenwriter Bruce Wagner, whose work includes the novels Force Majeure, Wild Palms, and I’m Losing You, and the screenplay for Maps to the Stars, directed by David Cronenberg. He talks about his new book, I Met Someone, and the struggles of being seen as a “Hollywood” novelist despite an interest in much darker and more spiritual themes. Also, author Norman M. Klein recommends two books by Dutch historian Johan Huizinga.
