WRITER'S BLOCK PODCAST INTERVIEW
DEC 29, 2023
WRITERS' BLOCK This week's guest is Asha Lemmie, author of the breakout GMA Book Club pick, Fifty Words for Rain. Her new book, The Wildest Sun, is the the story of Delphine, an aspiring postwar writer who seizes the opportunity to search for her alleged father, Ernest Hemingway.
Asha joins Patti Callahan Henry and Ron Block to discuss her research, how she developed this compelling story, and how the epic quest for identity and self worth came together for this beautifully written novel. NOTE: Please forgive some of the glitchy portions of this recording, but know it is well worth your time!

Now we want to share and celebrate stories—of the books we’ve written, the ones we’re reading now, and the art of writing—with each other and the guest authors we invite to join us. If you love books and are curious about the writing world, you’re in the right place.
