This episode contains material that might be inappropriate for younger listeners; discretion is advised. M. T. Anderson, author of Thirsty, Feed, The Astonishing Life of Octavian Nothing, Traitor to the Nation, Volume I: The Pox Party, and Yvain: The Knight of the Lion, tells Candlewick Press all about his early life as a fast-food employee and as a Candlewick intern. He also talks about banned books and shows off his singing skills (without laughing too much).
