Leslie Jamison joins Medaya and Kate to discuss her latest book, Splinters: Another Kind of Love Story, a memoir that chronicles the birth of her daughter and the collapse of her marriage soon after. Jamison writes about the bond with her own mother, as well as the intense, consuming love for her child. The book is not only a story about her most intimate relationships, but an examination of doubt, betrayal, forgiveness and, as the subtitle says, love.

Also, Phillip B. Williams, author of Ours, returns to recommend The Black Book, edited by Toni Morrison.
