57. Are We Finally Ready to Listen to Women's Sides of Stories? With Laura Warrell

New Day

Nov 11 2022 • 33 mins

In Laura Warrell’s debut novel Sweet, Soft, Plenty Rhythm, a cast of women seek love, redemption, and belonging in a story grounded in the world of jazz and centered on a womanizing musician’s venturesome life. Laura joins Claire to discuss what elements from her own life informed this book, why so many people seem to be drawn to philandering men, and why it was important for her to showcase the women’s voices in this story. Sweet, Soft, Plenty Rhythm is the November pick for The Lemonada Book Club Powered by Penguin Random House.
