Odd Woman and the City: Vivian Gornick's Reflections on Her Life in New York

Mar 10, 2015

In her latest book, Vivian Gornick explores New York City through the lens of her friendship with 'Len.'

"It takes a lot of living to encounter another human being about whom nothing irritates you. Nobody should be looking for it, nobody should require it or want it."

In this Talk of Iowa interview, host Charity Nebbe speaks with Gornick about that relationship, feminism in the 60s and the art of writing.
