Author Askold Melnyczuk moved to Cambridge 35 years ago. Now living in Medford, Melnyczuk still uses the city as a backdrop for much of his fiction. In his latest novel, currently in development, Melnyczuk writes of a 15-year-old Cantabrigian who explores all of what the city has to offer. As part of Radio Boston's ZIP-Code Stories project, Melnyczuk gives us a sneak peak into his latest novel, "Smedley's Secret Guide To World Literature," set in Cambridge.
