Here's the Radio Boston rundown for a special hour on Nov. 29. Tiziana Dearing is our host.

  • MacArthur Genius Grant Winner Ocean Vuong speaks with us about his first novel, "On Earth We're Briefly Gorgeous," which subverts what's expected of the form.
  • Kwame Alexander's talks with us about "The Undefeated," a children's book that pays tribute to America's complicated past. He says it's a "love letter to Black America."
  • Reginald Dwayne Betts told us that he discovered poetry while in prison. His latest collection, "Felon," explores life after incarceration.
  • Kristen Arnett on how she wants her latest novel, "Mostly Dead Things," to force us to think differently and deeper about her home state of Florida.

This program aired on November 29, 2019.
