10 PM: Writer’s Voice: Francesca Rheannon

Suspense writer Hallie Ephron‘s newest page-turner is There Was An Old Woman — its protagonists are the daughter of a difficult mother and her mother’s ninety-year old neighbor who’s the most delightful sleuth since Miss Marple. And then Lionel Shriver delves into the loyalties that can divide families when, in Shriver’s new novel, her main character’s morbidly obese brother comes to visit and she feels compelled to get him to lose weight. Lionel Shriver lost her own brother to obesity. Her novel Big Brother explores the issues of power struggles in families, our society’s obsession with food, and the obesity epidemic — all deftly drawn with Shriver’s dry wit.
