Guests: Francine Prose

Marty talks with FRANCINE PROSE, author of the new book Mister Monkey: A Novel, the darkly humorous tale of an off-off-off-off Broadway children’s musical about a playfully larcenous pet chimpanzee. Prose has written twenty other works of fiction, including Blue Angel, which was a finalist for the National Book Award.  She also has several non-fiction books, including last year’s Peggy Guggenheim: The Shock of the Modern. She has received a Guggenheim and a Fulbright fellowship and is now a Visiting Professor of Literature at Bard College.
