Episode 68: Mary Laura Philpott talks essays, feelings and perfectionism

We're thrilled to share this conversation with essayist Mary Laura Philpott, author of the most excellent collection I Miss You When I Blink. Mary Laura is also the Emmy-award winning co-host of A Word on Words, a literary interview show on Nashville Public Television; the author and illustrator of the book Penguins with People Problems; and "book enthusiast at large" for Parnassus Books — as well as an all-around delightful human.

We talk about feelings, the art of the personal essay, the transition between projects, how to work when you don’t know the outcome, quitting, and of course get some great book recommendations.

Find Mary Laura online here, and on Twitter, Instagram,and Facebook.
