My first podcast on US soil was with the delightful Pulitzer Prize nominated novelist Susan Choi.
Susan is the author of The Foreign Student, American Woman, A Person of Interest, and My Education. We had a great conversation about MFAs and their usefulness to young writers, and how her Asian American identity influences (or doesn't influence) her novels.
Susan's approach to researching a novel and how it's changed over the years was really interesting to me. She also spoke about her unique habit of writing in other people's houses when they were not home.
