The B&N Podcast


Jun 10, 2019

In her many bestselling novels, from Good in Bed to Who Do You Love and In Her Shoes, Jennifer Weiner's characters are wildly various in background and temperament, but there's one feature  -- besides the author's wry humor -- they share:  they tell the truth, willingly or otherwise, to the people they love.  In Weiner's sparkling new novel Mrs. Everything, she traces the lives of Detroit sisters Jo and Bethie from their 1950s childhood to the present day, and their divergent paths are connected by the undeniable truth of their bond with one another.  The author joined B&N's Miwa Messer in the studio to talk about her own family, what it means when your mother might see herself in your fiction, and her determination to tell stories that reflect the truth of women's experience.
