Oh, Should-Heads! If you haven't read Temporary, you are doing yourself a real disservice. It's clever and funny, but don't take our word for it. It's also received excellent reviews from The New York Times, The Washington Post and made Best Of 2020 lists from NPR and Publisher's Weekly and many more outlets. As we approach the first anniversary of quarantine, this is a book that will be the best possible distraction. Thank you so much for author Hilary Leichter, who is well versed in the rule of threes, for joining us! (Also in this episode: we all bought a lot of books and learned we didn't know anything about the Dust Bowl.)
