J. Ryan Stradal on his new novel and his love of the midwest
J. Ryan Stradal can’t resist writing about the midwest. His most recent novel, Saturday Night at the Lakeside Supper Club, utilizes the same setting of Minnesota that his two previous novels did, and for good reason.
I recently visited with J. Ryan Stradal about his love of the midwest, what exactly a supper club is, the burden of family pressures that parents pass on to their children, and more. I’m Beth Golay. From KMUW Studios, part of the NPR Podcast Network, this is Marginalia.
Saturday Night at the Lakeside Supper Club was published by Pamela Dorman Books.
Marginalia was produced at KMUW Wichita and is part of the NPR Podcast Network.
