Author and journalist Hattie Klotz hosts a conversation with Ashley Audrain whose debut novel, The Push , was an instant national bestseller.


A tense, page-turning psychological drama about the making and breaking of a family, told through the eyes of a woman whose experience of motherhood is nothing at all what she hoped for--and everything she feared.
