Like her previous book, the National Book Award-winning The Friend, Sigrid Nunez’s new release explores the grieving process.

The narrator of What Are You Going Through has been asked to accompany a childhood friend, from whom she’s grown apart, while the friend dies of cancer.

Nunez describes some of the influences on this work (and her others) in an interview with Fresh Air’s Terry Gross, during which she also reads a passage.

You can listen to their conversation below or read the transcript on NPR’s website.
