This episode of The Literary Life focuses on the unexpected, the surprising books and authors that readers are reading, talking about, and in these cases, laughing with.

Julie Klam joins us to discuss her new book You Had Me at Woof, which recounts her experiences fostering rescue dogs and the lessons they taught her.

Then we'll hear from Lewis Black, award-winning comedian, card-carrying curmudgeon, and bestselling author of I'm Dreaming of a Black Christmas, as he sings us a Christmas carol, as only he can.
