Author Juliet Grames joins Nancy Pearl to discuss her recent book, how she balances writing alongside editing crime fiction at Soho Press, and trends in the literary world. Her debut novel, "The Seven or Eight Deaths of Stella Fortuna," is the fictional story of two feuding sisters told over a lifetime between Southern Italy and Connecticut. She talks about her Italian grandmother, the inspiration behind Stella Fortuna, who actually had eight near-death experiences. Grames was inspired by immigration stories and the strength and bravery of women of her grandmother's generation.
