In this episode of The Literary Life, you'll hear from two short story experts, Maile Meloy (Both Ways is the Only Way I Want It) and Doug Dorst (Surf Guru). How do they approach a short story collection versus a novel? What can a writer accomplish in a short story that they can't with a longer work? We'll also be joined by Rosanne Cash, who'll discuss her new memoir Composed and play one of her best-loved songs from her Black Cadillac album. And Sloane Crosley shows up for our "Writer's Rant" to talk about why she didn't include a question mark in the title of her new essay collection essay How Did You Get this Number.
