Show Notes

This week, author Amitava Kumar’s new novel, “A Time Outside This Time,” is set at a writer’s retreat and reflects on the issues of fake news, memory, and the ways in which truth gives over to fiction. Kumar has crafted his fiction so seamlessly from real life that the reader is forced to reckon with what is “real.”
