AOT #189: Jeannette Walls Podcasts Half Broke Horses
Journalist Jeanette Walls, author of the critically acclaimed memoir The Glass Castle, discusses her new novel Half Broke Horses: A True-Life Novel, the story of her grandmother, told in a first-person voice that is authentic, irresistible, and triumphant. Lily Casey Smith, Jeannette Walls’s no nonsense, resourceful, and spectacularly compelling grandmother, lived a life of adventure, toil, heartbreak and triumph. Half Broke Horses is Laura Ingalls Wilder for adults, as riveting and dramatic as Isak Dinesen’s Out of Africa or Beryl Markham’s West with the Night.
