Episode 6 — Jessica Anya Blau
Summary: This is a good one, ladies and gentlemen. Jessica Anya Blau is the guest. She is the author of two novels, THE SUMMER OF NAKED SWIM PARTIES and, most recently, DRINKING CLOSER TO HOME, both from Harper Perennial. The conversation involves a variety of topics, including Santa Barbara, Berkeley, the loss of one's virginity, the male sexual organ, writing rituals, graduate school, drugs, Katy Perry, and, most importantly, Blau's wonderfully eccentric family, which served as the inspiration for her second book. Give it a listen. Seriously.
