Calling all romantics, writers, and memoir lovers–this episode is for you! When Joanna Rakoff, best selling author of A Fortunate Age and My Salinger Year (now also a movie starring Sigourney Weaver and Margaret Qualley), took a job at a storied New York literary agency back in her twenties she had no idea her experience there answering letters addressed to J.D. Salinger about Catcher in the Rye and assisting the author himself would shape her life for decades to come. In this episode we dive deep into the book that would change everything for her career and Joanna tells the story of marrying the wrong man, reuniting with the right man, and how they found a life together long after she thought they had missed their chance.
