Episode details

Today on BRING IT IN Henry Abbott and David Thorpe spoke with Thomas Beller, author of Seduction Theory: Stories, The Sleep-Over Artist, How To Be a Man: Scenes from a Protracted Boyhood, and J.D. Salinger: The Escape Artist, which won the New York City Book Award for biography/memoir. He is an associate professor and director of creative writing at Tulane University and serious pickup basketball artist.
