Kurt Andersen on True Believers
Wednesday, July 11, 2012
Kurt Andersen, host of Studio 360, discusses his new novel, True Believers. The story alternates between the present and the 1960s—and captures the enduring impact of the social upheaval of that time on the ways we live now. The narrator, Karen Hollander, is a successful attorney who recently removed herself from consideration for appointment to the U.S. Supreme Court because of a 1968 episode she’s managed to keep secret for more than forty years. She’s about to make that secret public—but first she has to track down the answers to some crucial last questions.
