Guest: Annie Liontas

Stavros Stavros Mavrakis is the Greek immigrant patriarch at the center of ANNIE LIONTAS’ debut novel Let Me Explain You. He has a premonition that he has just ten days to live, and proceeds to send a harsh email to his ex-wife and three daughters about how they should live their lives better after he’s gone. The novel explores the dynamics and relationships of a Greek immigrant family and their community. In this hour of Radio Times, Marty speaks with Liontas about her new book, her own family experiences, working with youth in Philadelphia, her writing, and more.
