It comes as no surprise that novelist Claire Messud discovered her life's calling at such a young age. "It was one of those things I announced when I was a kid. My parents gave me a typewriter for my sixth birthday because I had already said that I wanted to be a writer," says Messud. 

The New York Times best-selling author of The Emperor's Children joins Just the Right Book to discuss her latest novel, The Burning Girl, which explores the unraveling of two adolescent girls' friendship as they set out on a dangerous journey. Roxanne describes Claire as "one of the finest storytellers today about women's friendships." 

And also in this episode, we hear from Casey Coonerty, the owner of  Bookshop Santa Cruz for our segment "What's on the Front Table."
