This was a hilarious session on parents and children, fiction that reads like real life and true stories so incredible they read like fiction.  Be among the first to hear excerpts from Olivia Lichtenstein’s soon to be published new novel, Naked Yoga. We found out what happened when William Sutcliffe’s three fictional mothers, all dreaming of becoming grandmothers, descend on their 30-something sons.  And discovered what it means to be brought up by parents obsessed with celebrity like Cosmo Landesman’s.
