Episode 15: Sheila Heti, How Should a Person Be?

Leave a comment

If you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all: a lesson pressed upon your Book Fight podcasters by their mothers, and summarily ignored. That’s right, fans. In this one we’re bringing the fight.

We’re also welcoming back to the Book Fight basement our first repeat guest, fan favorite Katherine Hill. You may remember Katherine from her contributions to Episode 4, on Judy Blume’s YA classic Forever. This time, she’s tasked with defending Sheila Heti’s How Should a Person Be?: A Novel from Life to your skeptical Book Fight hosts.

Topics for discussion include: the best source material for fiction, the importance of having non-writer friends, and Tom’s strange abiding love for the sitcom Frasier.

As always, you can listen to the episode here, by clicking on the player below, or you can download the mp3 file and do with it what you will. Or get the episode straight from the iTunes store, where you can subscribe to the podcast and effortlessly get new episodes as they’re released.

If you like the show, please write a quick review on iTunes, which will help more people find us. And spread the word to your book-loving friends!
