During the last few months, many of us have experienced what being home means in new ways. Is home made up of the four walls that enclose us, the family that surrounds us, or the idea of safety that often eludes us?
A new memoir contemplates the concept of home and family at its tattered limits.
Stephanie Danler, who came to fame several years ago with her novel, "Sweetbitter," has written a memoir about her parents struggle with addiction and her own struggle to overcome that legacy. It's called "Stray."
Danler will be speaking about the book during a virtual event put on by Magic City Books on Wednesday night.
Danler joined Midday Edition on Wednesday to discuss the book and the experience of releasing a book during a pandemic.
