Keeping Up with Tayari Jones
We talk with novelist Tayari Jones. Born in the south, Jones has been "fast defining middle-class black Atlanta the way Cheever did Westchester," according to the Village Voice. Though Jones hasn’t lived in Atlanta for years, it’s where she grounds her work. As she puts it, when it comes to American culture, the urban south is where the rubber hits the road. We'll talk with Jones about her latest book, Silver Sparrow, along with the power of place, Jones’ insane love for Toni Morrison, and her latest work, which she’s researching at the Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study at Harvard University.

Guests:
   Tayari Jones, novelist whose latest work is Silver Sparrow
