Marginalia: Jennifer Weiner On 'That Summer'

Jonathan Pushnik
Jennifer Weiner, author of 'That Summer'

258 weeks. That number has probably changed since I spoke with author Jennifer Weiner, but at the time of this interview, 258 weeks was the amount of time that her books have been on the New York Times Bestseller list. That makes up nearly a quarter of her entire career that began 20 years ago with her debut, Good In Bed.

Her latest book is That Summer, the second book in what she’s calling her “beach trilogy.” It’s a beach read, but not in the traditional sense, as it tackles sexual assault and the #MeToo movement.

I recently spoke with Jennifer Weiner about all the things. Here’s our conversation.

That Summer by Jennifer Weiner was published by Atria Books.
