ABOUT THIS EPISODE
WRITERS' BLOCK Ron Block and Patti Callahan Henry talk with Mary Laura Philpott about Bomb Shelter: Love, Time and other Explosives, her collection of essays that are full of heart and humor.
NEW EPISODE! Once in a while, there are conversations that seem to redefine what it means to be a writer, a reader and a human. I can't wait for you all to hear Mary Laura Philpott, @rsblockmtm Ron and I have this brilliant exchange of ideas and thoughts surrounding the new book, Bomb Shelter. From Frank the turtle, to meditation, to screaming mothers, we truly connected. I was so honored to be a part of this glorious talk, and I cannot urge you enough to get your hands on #bombshelter! Enjoy this treasure!
“Philpott reckons with how we manage to exist when there’s always some unknown threat lurking nearby. Bomb Shelter is the literary equivalent of a therapy session.”
– Washington Post, “The Books to Read in 2022“
