Bookwaves – November 8, 2018: Helen Benedict

Helen Benedict, whose latest novel is “Wolf Season,” in conversation with Richard Wolinsky.

A journalist as well as novelist, Helen Benedict focuses on the effects of war, both on civilian and military populations. Her latest novel, “Wolf Season,” takes place in a small town near Albany, New York, where Iraq war veterans and Iraqi refugees both live and work, and what happens when a natural disaster forces them to interact. How does PTSD and trauma affect those who lived or fought in a war zone, and how does that trauma scar them afterward?

Extended 42-minute Radio Wolinsky podcast.
