Episode 117: Michael Frank in conversation with Lindsey Crittenden

Michael Frank is the author of the memoir The Mighty Franks, a Barnes & Noble Discover Great New Writers selection that was named one of the best books of 2017 by The Telegraph and The New Statesman and won the 2018 JQ Wingate Prize. In October, Farrar, Straus and Giroux published What Is Missing, his first novel. In this episode of the GrottoPod, Frank chats with author and Grotto instructor Lindsey Crittenden about What Is Missing, which The New Yorker has described as “a penetrating examination of how a life can be defined by contingency and surprise.” The two writers and friends also discuss the roles they have played as early and trusted readers of each other’s work.
