Lenore Zion, Novelist and Sex Therapist, on How a Wild Night in High School Helped to Inspire Her New Book, Stupid Children

Other People with Brad Listi is a free, twice-weekly podcast featuring in-depth interviews with today's leading authors. The show focuses on the writers themselves -- their lives, their struggles, their successes, and how they approach their work.

Here's an excerpt from Episode 155, my conversation with Lenore Zion, an author who also works as a sex therapist. Her first book, a humor collection called My Dead Pets Are Interesting, was published by TNB Books in 2011. And her debut novel, Stupid Children, is now available from Emergency Press.

In this segment, Zion describes a wild night in high school that wound up inspiring one of Stupid Children's most twistedly funny sections.
