122: Lisa Brennan-Jobs (SMALL FRY) & Marilynne Robinson’s HOUSEKEEPING

Lisa Brennan-Jobs drops into the Damn Library to discuss Small Fry, her coming-of-age memoir about growing up the daughter of Christian Brennan and Steve Jobs. We get into the slipperiness of memory, the selfishness of memoir, and the loneliness of childhood, as well as whether her book is actually “California Gothic.” She brings us Marilynne Robinson’s Housekeeping and of course the unconventional childhoods described within makes us connect it back to her book. Plus, so much more.
