While many readers sought escape from COVID-19 in literature, at least one author had a different feeling about books and the pandemic.
Bestseller Jodi Picoult found herself wondering, repeatedly, how writers were going to memorialize the pandemic.
She found her answer in — what else — real life.
Picoult shared the real-life stories, hers and others’, that inspired her latest release, Wish You Were Here, in an interview with NPR’s Scott Simon.
You can listen to their conversation about the novel below or read a transcript on NPR’s website.
