It's Tuesday, which means a new episode of What Should I Read Next!
Today I'm talking with Cara Strickland, a writer, food critic, and anxious cook who lives in the Pacific Northwest.
This episode covers a lot of ground: Cara and I discuss singleness, sense of place, British chick lit, book boundaries, food writing, and of course, what Cara should read next.
