Ep 359 - Drowning Ruth, by Christina Schwarz

Caveat lictor: this episode contains mild spoilers for Drowning Ruth.

Christina Schwarz's debut novel weaves together three main threads: historical fiction, melodramatic mystery, and sisterhood. The result is an interesting portrait of women in Depression-era Wisconsin striving for self-determination.

Additional talking points include knock-knock tips, Jonathan Franzen's Oprah complaints, and the Tooth Fairy's pyramid scheme.
