The Sunday Long Read Podcast

Episode 4: Ana Menendez

Aug. 7, 2018

Award-winning author Ana Menendez is called “a triple-threat” by Don in our 4th Sunday Long Read podcast—she’s been a reporter, a columnist and is now a full-time fiction writer (and, last week, Ana was guest-curator of the SLR). In their 40-minute conversation, Don and Ana discuss their shared early days at The Miami Herald and the inspiration and writing tips of a joyous, Pulitzer Prize-wining editor named Gene Miller; the joys and difficulties of writing (and re-writing); the music and rhythm of the finest prose (and its poetic origins); and the wisdom and folly of reviewing one’s own work 10 or 15 years later. Also, special thanks to Justin Morris for providing our new intro music. neither hosts nor alters podcast files. All content © its respective owners.
