It’s episode 126 with Laura Zigman author of new tragi-comic novel ‘Separation Anxiety’. Laura is funny, warm and insightful with a career that’s included a hit debut novel, a Hugh Jackman film, personal tragedy and ghost writing before she made an inspiring return to her own work. It was really fun to chat to Laura and it was a perfect tonic for these strange and uncertain times.

She’s been a contributor to the New York Times, the Washington Post, and the Huffington Post; a ghost writer and she’s produced a popular online series of animated videos called Annoying Conversations which we mention during our chat;.
