Studio 360 spends some time on its own. Kurt Andersen and his guest, the novelist Jonathan Lethem, discuss the pleasures and hazards of being alone. They’ll talk about the solitary work of writing a novel, and about musicians who ditch their bands to go solo. And we hear from playwright Will Eno and James Urbaniak, the actor who originated the role of Thom Pain (Based on Nothing), the acclaimed one-man show running Off Broadway. Plus: Dolly Parton drops by to talk to Kurt about her new album, Those Were the Days
