Inside the Writer’s Studio

Casey Cep (9/1/19) Inside the Writer’s Studio Episode #44

August 31, 2019

Casey joins Charlie to discuss her new book, Furious Hours: Murder, Fraud, and the Last Trial of Harper Lee. Casey talks about this fascinating excursion first into a bizarre and forgotten multiple murder case in Alabama and second into the story of how Harper Lee, author of To Kill A Mockingbird, almost made this case her own version of In Cold Blood. Southern history, racial justice, writer's block, and literary legacies combine for a great discussion and a great read.
