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 154, a terrific conversation with Sam Lipsyte, one of our finest -- and funniest -- writers. His new story collection, The Fun Parts, is now available from Farrar, Straus, & Giroux.
In this segment, Lipsyte talks about his early struggles, the deep disappointment he felt when his novel Home Land was rejected--and how it eventually went on to be published to great acclaim.
