October 6, 2016: Susan Faludi

susan-faludi-1Susan Faludi talks with host Richard Wolinsky about her latest book, In The Darkroom, which is about a search for identity … specifically the identity of her father, who moved to Hungary and had a sex-change operation late in his life, and with whom she reconnected. Susan Faludi is the author of Backlash: The Undeclared War Against American Women and Stiffed: The Betrayal of the American Man.

In this interview she discusses issues of transgender, the relationship between transgender and feminism, the Holocaust in Hungary, and how working on this book changed her life.

An extended version of this interview can be found as a Radio Wolinsky podcast.
