AOT #119: Darin Strauss Podcasts More Than It Hurts You
Darin Strauss, the acclaimed author of Chang and Eng, discusses his new novel More Than It Hurts You. This literary showstopper is a beautifully realized novel that at its heart is the story of a woman who will risk everything to feel something; a doctor whose diagnosis brings her entire life into question; and a man who suddenly realizes that being a good husband and a good father can no longer comfortably coexist.
“Darin Strauss’s latest is an eviscerating portrayal of contemporary American life, surgical and exact. At turns funny and disturbing, unsparing in its insights yet generous with understanding, More Than It Hurts You is a relentlessly rewarding piece of art.”-Colson Whitehead, author of Apex Hides the Hurt
