How to Proceed with Mary Ruefle

A new episode in our podcast with Linn Ullmann

We have a globally out of control situation, says Mary Ruefle.

In this epsiode she talks about reading and writing, about clarity and fear, about menopause and the freedom of invisibility, and about being in the margins. And of course about dogs.
